NFL Rumors: Seneca Wallace to Green Bay Packers?

Filed in Gather Sports News Channel by on September 2, 2012 0 Comments

The NFL season is about to begin, but players recently cut still have a shot at playing in the league as teams will look to fill holes with veteran players.

The Green Bay Packers are one of the top teams in the league, but they lack depth behind starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the front office could add a veteran signal caller in the next week.

Bleacher Report writer Andrew Garda has made a list of several quarterbacks that could fill the need of the Packers and Seneca Wallace is the top option. The veteran quarterback was released by Cleveland this week, but he has plenty of experience and has played in the West Coast offense, making him a logical choice as an insurance policy for the team.

The 32-year-old has a career quarterback rating of 81.3 and has completed nearly 60% of his passes for 31 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. Wallace also has good mobility and after the team lost Matt Flynn to free agency, signing a proven leader is imperative as the team and its fans have little faith in backup Graham Harrell.

The NFL has become a league of depth and the Packers need a good veteran, just in case Rodgers goes down to injury. Wallace doesn’t have the strongest arm, but he does show good instincts in the pocket and is a nice player to have on the roster.
