What a rotating carousel it’s been for the backup quarterback job on the Green Bay Packers. In just a few weeks, the team is now on their third projected second-string QB behind Aaron Rodgers.

Seneca Wallace was picked up on Monday by the Packers, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Green Bay also let go of quarterback B.J. Coleman. Coleman was projected to be the backup quarterback after Vince Young was released over the weekend. Young was first expected to win the backup job when the Packers let go of Graham Harrell.

Werder refers to the Packers having two of the San Francisco 49ers’ former backups. Wallace won’t bring any sort of knowledge only being there for a little over a week, but Tolzien was on the roster since the beginning of the 2011 season.

Why the Packers got rid of Young and decided to put Wallace there instead is pretty shocking. Perhaps Young really is done in the NFL.
