The New Orleans Saints officially now have three quarterbacks on their roster after today as they released veteran quarterback Seneca Wallace; this is according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The 33-year-old Wallace did not have a great preseason game against the Oakland Raiders last Friday. In that game, Wallace threw an interception and lost a fumble. That isn’t good for a veteran quarterback who is trying to stick to a roster. What will happen to Wallace now and his career? Who knows?
Wallace was drafted in the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. He spent four seasons with Seattle and then from 2010-2011 he was with the Cleveland Browns. With the Seahawks, Wallace’s best year was 2008. In that season, he started eight out of ten games, threw for 1,532 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and three interceptions. In Cleveland, Wallace was a backup only starting seven out of ten games in two seasons there.
