When the Packers cut B.J. Coleman, the only backup quarterback on their 53-man roster, we wondered who Aaron Rodgers’ backup would be. It didn’t take long to find out the answer: Seneca Wallace.
Wallace signed with the Packers today, Ed Werder of ESPN reports.
As the Packers prepare for their Week One meeting with the 49ers, they now have two quarterbacks who can run the 49ers’ offense to help their defense prepare: Both Wallace and Scott Tolzien, who’s on the Packers’ practice squad, were with the 49ers until last week.
Wallace left the 49ers under strange circumstances, with an initial report that he was retiring quickly refuted by Wallace himself. Wallace said that he believes the only reason the 49ers signed him was that they wanted to use his presence as leverage to squeeze backup quarterback Colt McCoy into accepting a pay cut.
If Wallace has any hard feelings toward the 49ers for that, he can get his revenge by giving the Packers all the intelligence he can provide before Sunday’s game.
