One day after Russell Wilson got paid by the Seattle Seahawks, linebacker Bobby Wagner did his own money dance. According to Rand Getlin of NFL Network, Wagner has agreed to terms on a new contract with the Seahawks.

Getlin reports it is a four-year extension for the dynamic inside linebacker, worth $10.75 million per year, making him the highest-paid inside linebacker in history.

Just as Getlin was breaking the news, former Seahawks teammate Michael Robinson confirmed the report, having just gotten off the phone with Wagner.

Mike Garafolo of noted his source as saying Wagner would put ink to page on Sunday to seal the contract.

With another big player locked up, Seattle has loaded its roster well for the future, as Danny Kelly of Field Gulls pointed out.

This was a terrific move by general manager John Schneider to get another of his top defenders secured for the future and happy. Seattle will certainly be a strong contender for years to come.
