SALT LAKE CITY – The Los Angeles Rams unveiled the jersey number for former Utah State and current NFL linebacker Bobby Wagner.

After spending the first 10 seasons of his career with the Seahawks, Wagner joined Seattle’s NFC West rival on March 31. The six-time All-Pro player was released by the Seahawks on March 8.

On Tuesday, May 17, the Rams revealed Wagner’s jersey number for the upcoming 2022 season. Los Angeles unveiled the number by sharing a video of a graphic done by Sotagraphics, a sports illustrator.
