Seneca Wallace Retires From NFL
By Adam Hurst
Seneca Wallace has been through this before. Thursday morning, Wallace made it clear he won’t be going through this again, choosing to retire from football.
The nine-year veteran quarterback was signed by San Francisco last week. Wallace, 33, informed head coach Jim Harbaugh of his decision before the team traveled to its final exhibition game against the Chargers, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
49ers rookie BJ Daniels, who threw for two touchdowns in Thursdays 41-6 win in San Diego, will now most likely be the No. 3 quarterback on San Francisco’s depth chart.
Coach Harbaugh had already officially named Colt McCoy the Niners backup quarterback last week after a preseason win against Minnesota. Wallace, who was expected to compete with Colt McCoy for the backup job, was rather sure of himself when talking to coach Harbaugh yesterday.
“It’s something that was his decision,” Harbaugh said, according to The Chronicle. “He felt strongly about it. I don’t talk people out of that. I’ve never seen it done on game day, but I wish him well.”
Wallace, who was cut by the New Orleans Saints earlier this month, hasn’t played in a game since January 1, 2012, the final game of the 2011 season for the Cleveland Browns.
