The Seattle Seahawks have opened extension talks with Bobby Wagner.

Pete Carroll said on Tuesday that Wager is “going to be a Seahawk” when all is said and done.

Wagner is representing himself in contract talks.

“It’s more challenging [for players representing themselves] that they can know, because to get through the process, there’s a lot to it,” Carroll said. “Bobby’s going to have good support around him; he has asked a lot of questions so that he will be prepared to deal with it, and I know he’ll do a good job and all. But it’s maybe more difficult than I think a guy can imagine going into it the first time. The conversations and issue and stuff to learn and all that, I think he’s looking forward to that, just to see what it’s all about.”
