Raiders agree to terms with QB Seneca Wallace

The Raiders have agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Seneca Wallace according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

The Raiders worked out two quarterbacks today in anticipation of signing one of them. Those two quarterbacks were former Chiefs and Dolphins backup, Tyler Thigpen and former Browns and Seahawks reserve, Seneca Wallace. Once the workouts were complete, they said "thanks, but no thanks" to Thigpen and worked out a contract with Wallace.

The 5-11 Wallace visited his old team in Seattle on Monday where the Seahawks told him "Thanks, but no thanks" and signed Brady Quinn. This was his only other visit. He gets his first shot at joining an NFL team since the Browns released him prior to last season.

It's a homecoming of sorts for Wallace who played junior college at Sacramento City College before transferring to Iowa State. He would later be chosen in the fourth round of the NFL draft by the Seahawks.

Wallace joins the team just prior to their first off-season workouts. He comes in as the third quarterback on the roster, behind Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor. Teams always carry at least three quarterbacks and typically carry four heading into training camp so expect another addition either in the draft or undrafted free agency.
