RENTON, Wash. (AP) – Bobby Wagner will be present for the Seattle Seahawks’ optional offseason activities.

Just don’t expect him to take part.

Seahawks could really use DT Gerald McCoy, but can they get him?

That was the message from the All-Pro middle linebacker Tuesday as Seattle continued the first week of organized team activities. Wagner’s contract is up after next season and he indicated there had been preliminary talks regarding a new deal.

Wagner’s decision doesn’t go as far as creating the distraction of a contract holdout but it does make it clear he doesn’t intend to take any risks until he has a new deal.

Wagner has his eyes on the contract signed by C.J. Mosley with the New York Jets this offseason that averages $17 million per season.

What Seahawks fans should — and shouldn’t — read into from OTAs
