Wagner looking to seize linebacker job
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle coach Pete Carroll has wanted the Seahawks to get faster on defense, especially at linebacker.
With the addition of Bobby Wagner in the second round of the draft, Carroll hopes they've solved that issue.
Wagner has been thrown into the fire during this weekend's rookie minicamp getting reps at middle linebacker as the Seahawks look to fill the hole left by David Hawthorne's departure to New Orleans.
"The (MLB) spot is wide open and we have to see what happens. This is what Bobby is putting his sights on, but we'll have to see how it goes,'' Carroll said.
Seattle brought back Matt McCoy and signed veteran Barrett Ruud during free agency that will also be a part of the competition for the starting job.
