LOS ANGELES — The Seattle Seahawks are “making progress” on a new contract for All-Pro middle linebacker Bobby Wagner and a deal could be done before training camp opens next week, NFL Network said Wednesday.

NFL Media’s Rand Getlin, who filed this report, said on Wednesday’s edition of the network’s “NFL Total Access” show  that talks have been “active” between the Hawks and the 25-year-old Wagner since they began in June.

Getlin said a long-term deal with Wagner would make it easier for the Hawks to reserve their 2016 franchise tag for quarterback Russell Wilson, should they fail to sign Wilson to a long-term deal before his contract expires after the 2015 season.

Wagner, the Seahawks’ second-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft out of Utah State, is scheduled to earn just under $1 million this season, the final year of his rookie contract.

Despite missing five games due to injury in 2014, Wagner was named to the first team All-Pro team. He also received one NFL Most Valuable Player vote from former NFL coach Tony Dungy.

    I can see the Hawks using the franchise tag on Wilson until they are forced to either let him go or make a deal because they need the franchise tag for another player.
