Seneca Wallace: A return to Seattle Seahawks in order?
With the Seattle Seahawks actively trying to trade backup quarterback Matt Flynn, the speculation regarding who the team would sign to take his place has run rampant.
A couple of the names that have popped up in the last two days include Vince Young and Colt McCoy. The latest to join the list of No. 2 quarterback candidates is Seneca Wallace, who played for the Seahawks from 2003-2009 before spending two seasons with the Cleveland Browns.
While re-signing Wallace seems unlikely for the Seahawks, there’s no denying that he would be a terrific fit as Russell Wilson’s backup.
On top of displaying a solid throwing arm, Wallace brings a dynamic quality to the quarterback spot with an ability to keep plays alive with his feet. He’s a smart player back in the pocket, combining outstanding football IQ with a knack for reviving drives. Plus, he’s similar to Wilson in size. If Wilson were to go down momentarily, the Seahawks wouldn’t lose too much with Wallace in the game.
During his time as Matt Hasselbeck’s backup, Wallace was effective when stepping in as an emergency fill-in. The problem, however, was his inconsistency when filling in as a long-term solution at quarterback. Even when the passing part of his game was going well, he tended to lose fumbles at inconvenient times and crumbled when the pass rush turned up.
It seems unlikely that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll would bring back a player that he traded when he first got to Seattle. Still, it’s hard to deny that the fit is there.
Wallace may not be a hot name this offseason, but he’s one that could fill a void for the Seahawks at an extreme discount. Makes sense to me.
