The 2022 NFL free agency kicks off soon and teams around the league are already making decisions on who they want to sign. Bobby Wagner is going to be a hot commodity after the Seattle Seahawks released the veteran linebacker from the roster. He should garner plenty of interest and it sounds like the Dallas Cowboys could be a potential suitor.
According to Ed Werder, the Cowboys have already been in touch with Bobby Wagner. It's unclear what Dallas is aiming to pay the future Hall of Fame linebacker, but it's a smart move for this franchise. If Wagner signs with this team, he'd be rejoining Dan Quinn who was a former coach of the Seahawks.

The thought of Bobby Wagner playing alongside Micah Parsons should send shivers down the backs of the rest of the NFC East. Dallas would set themselves up with one of the best front sevens in the league with Wagner and Parsons feasting on opposing offenses. The Cowboys would easily set themselves apart from the competition and would become an early favorite to win the division.
Unfortunately for the Cowboys, it sounds like they don't have the finances necessary to sign Bobby Wagner, per Clarence Hill Jr. Although this might be a dream come true for the fanbase, Dallas just doesn't have the necessary funds to make a big move like this one.
Per sources, the Cowboys are not going to be in the Bobby Wagner sweepstakes. Can't compete money wise. Or won't.

Keep an eye on Bobby Wagner, as he's bound to have multiple teams bidding to sign him. The Cowboys are the first team reported to show interest, even though they don't have the cap space to reel him in. It'll be interesting to see which franchise signs the future Hall of Fame linebacker, as he's sure to make an impact on any defense in the league.
Look for the former Seahawk to sign a decently sized contract during the NFL free agency period. Although the Cowboys are interested in signing Bobby Wagner, it just might not be in the cards.
