Bobby Wagner among the best single-season grades...


Pro Football Focus, now in its 14th year of creating grades for every player on every play, put together an all-time team based on single-season grades — and Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner made the team.

Wagner’ 2018 season was represented as one of two linebackers on the team, alongside Luke Kuechly’s 2015 season.

Wagner earned a 91.8 grade in 2018, the highest mark of his career. Pro Football Focus writer Mark Chichester wrote:

Wagner finished the 2018 season ranked first in overall grade (91.9), coverage grade (90.4) and run-defense grade (91.8) among qualifying off-ball linebackers. Only two off-ball linebackers in the PFF era (2006-18) have earned 90.0-plus marks in all three facets: Wagner in 2018 and Kuechly in 2015. As good as they come as a tackler, Wagner holds first and second place for the PFF record for the most tackles made without a miss, the top mark ringing in at an astonishing 140 tackles.

Wagner parlayed an outstanding 2018 season into a three-year, $54 million contract extension that will keep him in Seattle through the 2022 season. Alongside longtime teammate K.J. Wright and Mychal Kendricks, the Seahawks have perhaps the greatest group of linebackers in franchise history.
