Bobby Wagner would like to retire as a member of the Seattle Seahawks, but he's a realist.

The linebacker is entering the final year of his contract, but he's not ready to stop playing football.

"I want to retire a Seahawk, but I understand it's a business," Wagner told NFL Network. "I'm preparing like this is my last year as a Seahawk. If it is, I want to make sure I go out with a bang and make sure I give the city something to remember."

Wagner said he's yet to begin contract talks on a new deal, negotiations he intends on representing himself in.
