Browns part with Seneca Wallace

Getty Images

Pat McManamon of FOX Sports Ohio reports that the Cleveland Browns have released quarterback Seneca Wallace.

The move clears $2.4 million in salary. Despite some hard feelings on the part of incumbent quarterback Colt McCoy after the Browns drafted Brandon Weeden in the first round, McCoy appears to have been kept over Wallace as Weeden’s primary backup.

McCoy is owed minimum base salaries and cheaper than Wallace. The Browns also look to be keeping Thaddeus Lewis as a third-string quarterback.

No quarterback depth chart in the league is as cost effective as the Browns’.

They will hope the on-field product is effective, as well.

    Why would you cut the best QB on your roster?

    Dude’s a solid backup. He’ll have a job soon.

    Time for the browns to look forward to a high draft pick in ’13.

    Well, you get what you pay for. Actually Weeden will be fairly good

    Great move!!!
    Papa Weed flounders, you got McCoy as a decent back up
    He shines and McCoy gets clean up work over the season, you’ve got a good midround draft pick.

    McCoy stunk it up in a major way last night but I am happy to see Wallace gone.
    Would not surprise me if McCoy gets cut too and the Browns grab another cuttee

    He would be an upgrade for the Jets.

    Welcome to the Joe Banner era Browns fans
    Signed Philadelphia

    I like Weedens future over Tannehill and Russ Wilson.

    I didn’t know it was opposite day…

    This is a sad day for Holmgren. He just knew Senaca was going to become a passer. He restrained him from running early in his career and the kid never rebounded.

  13. jhorton83 says: Aug 31, 2012 2:33 PM

    He’d be better than any of the quarterbacks on Arizona’s roster. I have a feeling that can be said for most of the quarterbacks released today though.

  14. chc4 says: Aug 31, 2012 2:38 PM

    Browns will be bad.

    Weeden’s future?

    He’ll be 29 in a month and a half

    Do you know what cost-effective means?

    It means getting the most effectiveness per dollar spent. It would imply that you have to receive some sort of effectiveness.

    I don’t care how cheap those QB’s are—it may very well be the LEAST cost effective group in the league, given the lack of, you know, effectiveness.

    Well, maybe not the least cost-effective. Kolb, I’m looking at you.

    thank God they finally did are starting to make better choices

  18. dannyreneau says: Aug 31, 2012 3:05 PM

    As a long time Seahawks fan this doesn’t surprise me. That guy is lazy. The only time I was excited to see him on the field was when he lined up as a receiver.

  19. lenke08 says: Aug 31, 2012 4:10 PM

    When he started games for the browns he never won them.

  20. jtylert says: Aug 31, 2012 4:20 PM

    Seneca lazy?

    The dude’s a gamer. I think he should have been put in as a kick returner/receiver early in his career but Holmgren mismanaged his skillset and tried to plug him into the same mold as Hasselbeck.

    He’s definitely slowed with time, but man… for the first few years… that guy had WHEELS.

    There’s plenty of teams that can use a competent, athletic quarterback. I feel he’ll be picked up soon.

  21. drstove says: Aug 31, 2012 5:03 PM

    Good move. Maybe one day this season we will get a chance to see Colt perform with some of the supporting cast he didn’t have the last two seasons.

  22. oldcracker says: Aug 31, 2012 5:26 PM

    Seneca didn’t want to be on the Browns, it’s a win-win for each party.

    Since Seneca is familar with the WC Offense, he should take a shot w the Cardinals.

    Not sure whether to applaud the Browns for finally gaining some sanity on this issue…or bash them for yet another “we can’t make up our minds, let’s change horses again in mid-stream” move. They were supposedly so worried McCoy would be a problem they wanted him gone at any cost. Now, he ends up on the team and bringing Wallace in was a total waste of time and effort.

    Yes, they’ll be drafting right after your team!

    It’s no surprise. Wallace wouldn’t help the young guys and was a cancer in the locker room.
