There was little surprise on Saturday when Seneca Wallace was not one of the players to make the final 53-man roster. Actually, we knew before the Niners’ final preseason game on Thursday this would be the case. Because the Internet is psychic like that. But Wallace wants to make it clear that he is not retiring from football, despite rumors to the contrary. The man at the source of those rumors? One Jim Harbaugh: Harbaugh said Seneca Wallace told him today that "he's not continuing playing football." Harbaugh: "Never seen that on a game day." — Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) August 30, 2013 Naturally, because of the 24-hour news cycle is starved for stories, those remarks and got picked up all over the place. And now Wallace is pissed at the Niners coach for playing Perez Hilton. From the Des Moines Register: “For him to come out and say that, ‘Hey, Seneca’s planning on his retirement’ … I don’t think that’s even 100 percent fair for him to come out and say th...
BEST OF MAXIM
Today is not just about cuts. Jim Harbaugh signed his former fullback at Stanford. @KyleBonagura: The #49ers will sign former Stanford FB Owen Marecic (just released by Browns), per league source. A Harbaugh favorite from the Farm.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Seneca Wallace was said to be retired after not traveling with the team, to the preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers. Apparently it was just a case of a player not being happy with his current scenery. Don Yee Wallace's agent provided a quote to NFL.com stating that his client wants to continue to play professional football.
Looks like the 49ers quarterback carousel has finally come to a stop:
The 49ers intend to release QB Seneca Wallace and will not play him tonight, league source says.

That Kaepernick fella will stir the drink that is the Niners offense. That leaves Colt McCoy as the back-up and seventh-rounder BJ Daniels presumably as the third-string...
Matt Barrows reports that a league source has informed him that the 49ers intend to release QB Seneca Wallace following their final preseason game.
Wallace, 33, was signed to a contract just last week, but San Francisco appears to be comfortable moving forward with Colt McCoy and rookie B.J. Daniels as Colin Kaepernick’s backup this season.
Wallace didn’t generate a lot...
Seneca Wallace joins the Packers after allegedly retiring during a short stint with the 49ers. Wallace, who was drafted by Seattle when Ted Thompson was with the Seahawks, boasts a 6-15 career record as a starter.
The Packers went from Graham Harrell to Vince Young to B.J. Coleman before signing Seneca Wallace on Monday. Wallace, like practice squad addition Scott Tolzien, played for San Francisco. How convenient.
The Green Bay Packers dumped backup quarterback Vince Young on Saturday and moved B.J. Coleman up to No. 2 on the teams depth cart.
While the move came as a surprise the Packers and general manager Ted Thompson took the blame for signing Young.
“Quite frankly, it probably wasn’t fair to Vince,” Thompson said. “We threw a lot on his plate, and the fault is probably...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers' backup quarterback carousel has not stopped spinning. After releasing both of their top reserves -- first Graham Harrell and then Vince Young -- over the past week, the Packers were left with only 2012 seventh-round pick B.J. Coleman to take snaps behind starter Aaron Rodgers. Now, not even that is true.
Coleman was released by the team...
Seneca Wallace retired, then didn’t retire, got mad at the 49ers and now signed with the team that plays the 49ers Week 1.
Packers signing Seneca Wallace as backup to Aaron Rodgers. They open vs Niners and have two of their QBS – Wallace, Scott Tolzien to prep D.

Wallace is still a solid NFL back up. Hopefully nothing will happen to Aaron Rodgers.
