Seneca Wallace Thrilled to be a Part of Green Bay Packers
eteran quarterback Seneca Wallace is thrilled to be a member of the Green Bay Packers after the San Francisco 49ers screwed him over recently. The quarterback is hoping to do whatever he can to help the Packers prepare for what the 49ers have in store in Week 1.
Wallace and San Francisco did not part on the best of terms. It is no secret the communication between the two parties was not good, but no one knew how bad it truly was until Wallace spoke on the subject.
“I’ve been around this game long enough where I can see what’s going on,” Wallace recently told the Des Moines Register, “and I realized right away the reason they brought me here was to get Colt (McCoy) to take a pay cut.”
The 49ers signing Wallace forced backup quarterback Colt McCoy to take a cut in pay that saw his salary drop from a respectable $1.5 million to the league minimum of $630,000 in 2013.
What happened is now in the past. Wallace is now focusing on how to help Packers starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers not only get ready for a very talented and aggressive 49ers defense, but to have another MVP-caliber season. Wallace will use his veteran experience to give Rodgers a different look from the bench that could help the superstar on the field.
“The game is inches,” Wallace said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “You’ve got to take advantage of those opportunities when you get them. So if there’s something that a younger kid might not have saw or maybe a call that I can pick up on that they’re using defensively in bringing certain blitzes, it’s a chess match. Whatever I can get back to him to provide him with that, I’m going to do that.”
After being out of the league for over a year, Wallace is happy to be back playing football. With that being said, he could have never imagined the situation he now finds himself in where he is sitting on the bench next to the best quarterback in the league.
