Mangini might use both Delhomme and Wallace

The Browns brought in veteran quarterbacks Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace in the offseason, and while Delhomme may get the starting nod, Browns coach Eric Mangini has been impressed enough with Wallace that he may not want to keep him on the bench for long.

“I don’t think you could rule out the possibility of having them both play,” Mangini told the The Plain Dealer after organized team activities Thursday. “I think Seneca has had a really nice camp. It’s a different style than Jake’s, which is good because it puts some different pressures on the defense.

“Seneca gives you some flexibility to do some things, just like Jake has certain things that he does. If you can incorporate them both in a plan that makes sense, that works, then that could be a good thing. Then you have a guy like Josh Cribbs, he presents different problems. Now you put Josh Cribbs and Seneca in the game together, they can present different problems.”
