Many of you, especially the ones who saw the game Friday against the Raiders, had to know this move was coming. The Saints have announced they have cut ties with 33-year old Seneca Wallace, as per Adam Schefter.
Wallace’s only preseason outing came on Friday. It included two sacks, an interception and a lost fumble in only eight drop backs. McCown earned the backup job with a solid camp; he was Matt Ryan‘s backup in Atlanta last year.
Wallace was horrid against the Raiders, to say the least. While it seems that McCown should be the favored lock to hold the clipboard for this upcoming season, it also means that hometown Tulane fan favorite Ryan Griffin is next on the depth chart. Griffin is a great developmental QB, and helped lead the Saints out of their second half rut Friday. As for Wallace, there are clubs out there who would benefit from his veteran duties as a backup, however, it won’t be on the Saints. Wallace was supposed to be a huge contender for the backup spot, but was done in by a poor performance. One thing is certain, we never hope we have to rely on either of these QBs in the immediate, near, or distant future.
