The Green Bay Packers sign veteran quarterback Seneca Wallace as cover for Aaron Rodgers, releasing BJ Coleman to make room on the roster.

The Green Bay Packers have signed veteran quarterback Seneca Wallace to act as a back-up to Aaron Rodgers.

Wallace joined up with his new teammates yesterday having become a free agent when he was released by the San Francisco 49ers last week. The veteran allegedly asked to be let go after just seven days with the 49ers due to a lack of chances to make the first team.

The 33-year-old has spent the majority of his career as a back-up quarterback and will fulfil that role again this season as he plays understudy to Rodgers, who became the highest-paid player in NFL history this summer.

The Packers released BJ Coleman in order to make room for Wallace on the roster.

The 24-year-old joined the Packers last season having been selected in the seventh round of the 2012 draft.
