It seems as if the San Francisco 49ers are not happy with their quarterback situation. Just a little while ago, they signed free agent quarterback Seneca Wallace. In order to make room for him, San Francisco has waived wide receiver Ricardo Lockette.
The 49ers had expressed interest in Wallace yesterday, and today they made the signing. The 5’11” quarterback out of Iowa State has been known for his scrambling ability, although maybe not so much now.
But, if he still has some of that left in him, he could prove valuable for this offense. Throughout his career he has amassed 293 total rushing yards and one touchdown.
Also, this now means that the backup position is between Colt McCoy, Scott Tolzien, B.J. Daniels and Wallace.
Most recently, Wallace was Colt McCoy’s backup in Cleveland during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, which was when Eric Mangini, who serves as a consultant for the 49ers, was the head coach of the team.
Wallace had been a backup quarterback with the Seattle Seahawks’ for most of his career before moving to the Browns. Overall, he has started 21 total games in 10 NFL seasons. He has a career 59.2% completion percentage and has totaled 4,808 yards and 31 touchdowns to go along with 18 interceptions.
