Seneca Wallace enters what can only be termed as a very fluid quarterback situation in Cleveland. The only thing that seems certain is there will be more change.
The Browns’ acquisition of Wallace on Monday is the most decisive evidence that one of the team’s incumbent quarterbacks — Brady Quinn or Derek Anderson — will be jettisoned from the roster. Browns president Mike Holmgren has been consistent in his position that he’s still evaluating the position, but he went on the record from the NFL Scouting Combine in saying that a decision must be made on Anderson before his $2 million roster bonus is due.
Acquiring Wallace — who wouldn’t be expected to be anything less than a No. 2 QB with the Browns — is one step closer in the process that will include heavy involvement from Holmgren. As NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora noted Monday, though, the Browns still could make other moves for veteran quarterbacks. It’s a situation filled with uncertainty.
The Browns also hold the No. 7 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
