The San Francisco 49ers’ are reportedly interested in former Seattle Seahawks’ backup quarterback Seneca Wallace, according to NFL.com's Dan Hanzus. The 49ers’ are unsettled at the position behind starter Colin Kaepernick since trading Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs. San Francisco acquired Colt McCoy from the Cleveland Browns this past offseason with the hopes that he would solidify the position. However, McCoy was injured in the 49ers’ preseason game last week which may lead to the dreaded “injury-prone” label. The 49ers’ also have Scott Tolzien and rookie B.J. Daniels on the roster, though neither is impressive enough to take the No. 2 job this season. San Francisco jumped when New Orleans released Seneca Wallace last week, quickly scheduling a visit with the veteran. It is quite possible that Jim Harbaugh would feel more comfortable with a reliable veteran as a backup instead of a younger, less experienced quarterback heading into a season full of expectations. It is also quite possible that San Francisco would like to have an option behind Colin Kaepernick that is capable of running a similar option-style attack on offense. Though Colt McCoy’s running abilities have been far underrated in his short career, there is no doubt that Wallace is the more capable open-field runner. At this point, he likely has a better grasp of opposing defenses than any other option currently on the roster as well. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
