The New Orleans Saints have added another name to their quarterback mix, signing veteran Seneca Wallace to a one-year contract, the team announced Monday.
NFL free agency is under way. Follow all of the latest rumors and signings in our free-agent tracker.
Wallace joins the Saints a week after working out with the Oakland Raiders. Wallace, who also worked out with the Seattle Seahawks, spent the 2012 season out of football after the Cleveland Browns cut him during training camp. He went 1-6 as a starter in two seasons with the Browns.
The Raiders said they had not ruled out signing Wallace, but the Saints eliminated the option.
Drew Brees remains entrenched atop New Orleans' depth chart, but the backup job is open after Chase Daniel defected for the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency.
Wallace, 32, will compete with Luke McCown, who was signed by the Saints last month. If the Saints have their way, neither man will see meaningful regular-season action in 2013.
