Browns quarterback Seneca Wallace has spent much of his nine seasons in the NFL as a backup quarterback. First to Matt Hasselbeck with the Seahawks from 2003-09 and then Jake Delhomme and Colt McCoy with the Browns the last two seasons.
With McCoy shut down for the season due to a concussion, Wallace is out to show that he’s capable of being a starting quarterback in the National Football League, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.
“At the end of the day, I can control what I can control,” he said. “Yeah, I get frustrated that, hey, I feel like I deserve a shot or I want a shot. But at the end of the day, it’s just a matter of making sure I lead my teammates in the right direction. The rest will take care of itself.”
Wallace, 31, started 14 games during his seven seasons with the Seahawks, with most of those coming during the 2008 season. Wallace has started six games over his two seasons with the Browns. In the last two games, Wallace has completed 37-of-64 pass attempts for 373 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a pair of road losses to the Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens.
Wallace is signed through the 2013 season.
