Seneca Wallace is currently the Browns’ 3rd string quarterback and when asked about staying the 3rd string quarterback, Seneca Wallace said today, in an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, that he might request a trade if that continues to be the case. Wallace will almost definitely be the Browns’ #3 quarterback unless the Browns lower their asking price on Colt McCoy and find a suitor for him.

It might seem kind of ridiculous for a player like Seneca Wallace to request a trade, but Drew Stanton did it earlier this offseason and a trade was actually able to be made as he ended up in Indianapolis. Wallace is a similar caliber player to Stanton and could be the primary backup for a few teams out there. He might even be fine with being the #3 quarterback somewhere else, as long as it would get him away from being the #3 quarterback on what figures to once again be a last place team in Cleveland. It’s worth noting that in the interview Wallace hinted he sees himself as a starting caliber quarterback.

If Wallace requests a trade and the Browns can’t deal him, he’ll probably be cut. Wallace is owed 2.85 million this season so that’s the more likely outcome. Trading McCoy and keeping Wallace would make more sense though for the Browns. McCoy would bring back more value in a trade, as a 25 year old with starting experience and a 540 thousand dollar salary, while Wallace would serve as a better veteran mentor to Brandon Weeden in his age 32 season and he would be seen as less of a threat to his job.
