At 31 years old, he might be moving to the tail end of his peak years.
However, there are still no signs of him slowing down after tallying a career-best 170 tackles, five passes defended, and one sack for the Seattle Seahawks last season.
But the physical beating he gets each game may eventually take a toll on his physical well-being.
Therefore, he is already thinking of his career after football, as shared by Pro Football Focus’ Ari Meirov.
#Rams LB Bobby Wagner said on the @PatMcAfeeShow that he has aspirations to be a team president or part owner once he's done playing. He graduated with a business degree and has done extensive learning on the business of football. He negotiated his last 2 deals without an agent.

Wagner does show his smarts when he takes the field, earning him six First-Team All-Pro selections and eight Pro Bowls.
He was also a vital contributor to the Seahawks’ triumph in Super Bowl XLVIII.
But beyond the gridiron, his business background helps him understand the nuances of football operations.
After all, he was able to negotiate his contract without an agent.
Defending The Crown
But for now, he will help his hometown team defend their Super Bowl title.
They have a strong chance of winning consecutive championships, especially after signing Matthew Stafford to a four-year, $160 million extension.
Therefore, the former Utah State standout will have a strong chance of earning his second Super Bowl ring.
