A lousy preseason game has led the Saints to decide they no longer need the services of backup quarterback Seneca Wallace.
Wallace, who threw an interception and lost a fumble during his brief appearance in last week’s preseason game against the Raiders, has been released, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The 33-year-old Wallace was an excellent college player at Iowa State but has never done much as an NFL quarterback. It’s entirely possible that the game against the Raiders will turn out to be the last time he wears an NFL uniform.
The Saints now have veteran Luke McCown and undrafted rookie Ryan Griffin on the depth chart behind Drew Brees.
