RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Bobby Wagner showed enough in training camp a season ago that the Seattle Seahawks were comfortable heading into the regular season with a rookie drafted in the second round from a non-BCS school starting at middle linebacker.
It wasn't until Wagner chased down Carolina quarterback Cam Newton from behind in Week 5 a year ago that everyone else started to take notice of what Wagner was doing.
Wagner heads back to Carolina this week for the Seahawks season opener, looking to exceed the production of a rookie season when he was at the center of one of the best defenses in the NFL.
Just like quarterback Russell Wilson, Wagner was a big question for the Seahawks when the 2012 season opener arrived.
