As the 32 NFL clubs start releasing players in order to meet tonight’s deadline of having a final 53 man roster, some veteran players will be released. This season is no different than any other season with some surprise moves being made at the 11th hour. It appears that the quarterback situation in Cleveland has been resolved, another veteran has been jettisoned by the New England Patriots and the Washington Redskins confusing running back situation has been made a bit clearer.
Several outlets are reporting this afternoon that veteran QB Seneca Wallace has been released by the Cleveland Browns. This news does not surprise me, given Seneca Wallace’s salary heading into the regular season versus Colt McCoy’s cost. Yes, there might have been a rift between McCoy and the team’s president over the handling of McCoy’s concussion last year, but he understands the offense and comes at a much cheaper price.

Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Seneca Wallace continues to promote his Colt McCoy hate campaign publicly. Wallace took to the airways to once again say he won’t be Colt McCoy’s mentor.

Anytime a team faces that final cut-down to the 53 man roster there are some very difficult decisions to be made.

Throughout Bill Belichick’s tenure, the Patriots have long been known as a team that has no problem going against the grain and parting ways with talented players. Whether it’s due to the numbers game or a financial issue, sentimentality is not big in New England.
The Pats seem to make these moves annually and … well, this year is no different.
