The game of musical chairs behind Aaron Rodgers continues for the Green Bay Packers.
After the Packers released Vince Young over the weekend, B.J. Coleman became the default backup to Rodgers. The Packers did sign another quarterback in former Wisconsin Badger Scott Tolzien but he has since been placed on the practice squad.
Now Green Bay has reportedly cut Coleman, according to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press- Gazette. Fans have been clamoring for former backup Matt Flynn to return to Green Bay, but reports are coming in from Ed Werder of ESPN that Seneca Wallace will be the new backup to Aaron Rodgers. Wallace, like the also recently signed Scott Tolzien, was released by the San Francisco 49ers.
With now two former 49ers quarterbacks on the team, it’s clear GM Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy are going all-in for an opening day win against the 49ers. Wallace, however, might have additional incentive for wanting beat the 49ers after he ripped coach Jim Harbaugh for telling reporters Wallace had retired from the NFL when he really had not. According to Wallace, he had simply asked for and was granted his release after the quarterback realized he was only brought in to force backup Colt McCoy to take a paycut.
