Perhaps after seeing the writing on the wall, veteran quarterback Seneca Wallace has left the San Francisco 49ers just a week after signing with them.
General manager Trent Baalke told the news to the media, and he said the team is deciding how to phrase the transaction. Wallace did not travel to San Diego with the team, where the 49ers are playing the Chargers as we speak.
There are many reports out there saying different things about Wallace, but the bottom line is that his time as a 49er is done.
Drafted in 2005 by the Seahawks, Wallace backed up Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle. He was a starter for a portion of 2008, when he threw for 1,532 yards and 11 touchdowns in 10 games.
Wallace was traded to the Browns in 2010, where he was trumped by injuries for two seasons before being released after the 2012 preseason.
He was signed by the 49ers a week ago, when they were still undecided on who would be their backup quarterback. Neither Colt McCoy nor Scott Tolzien were very impressive during their first two preseason games.
However, after preseason game No. 3, head coach Jim Harbaugh named McCoy the backup, then Tolzien was released. With Wallace now gone, that pushes seventh-round draft pick B.J. Daniels into the third-string role.
