SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah State and current NFL standout linebacker Bobby Wagner and the Los Angeles Rams “mutually agreed” to part ways, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The NFL insider reported Wagner’s departure from the Rams on Thursday, February 23.

“Rams and nine-time All-Pro LB Bobby Wagner mutually agreed Thursday to part ways, sources tells ESPN,” Schefter tweeted. “Rams needs more cap space and Wagner wants to win. He will now be a notable part of this year’s free-agent class.”

“Bobby Wagner started all 17 games this past season for the Rams and was PFF’s highest-graded linebacker. Wagner was voted All-Pro for the ninth straight year,” Schefter added in an additional post on Twitter.

Earlier in 2023, the former USU standout received his ninth career AP All-Pro honor.

Wagner has been named to the All-Pro first team six times and three times to the second team during his 11-year NFL career.

This season, Wagner recorded 140 total tackles, 81 solo tackles, six sacks, two interceptions, and five pass breakups.

In 2022, the Rams finished in third place in the NFC West with a 5-12 record. Los Angeles failed to qualify for the NFL Playoffs after winning the Super Bowl last season.
