Seattle Seahawks quarterback Seneca Wallace will visit One Buccaneer Place on Wednesday, according to the NFL Network.
Wallace, 25, is a restricted free agent and is entering his fourth season in the NFL. He’s played in seven career games, all of which came in 2005. Wallace completed 13-of-25 passes for 173 yards and tossed one touchdown and one interception.
The 5-foot-11, 196-pound Wallace is considered a versatile athlete. The Seahawks occassionaly lined Wallace up at quarterback and wide receiver last season. He’s also able to return punts and kickoffs.
The Bucs can only acquire Wallace if they sign him to an offer that the Seahawks refuse to match. In return for Wallace’s services, the Seahawks would receive the Bucs’ fourth-round draft pick.
Although it has four quarterbacks – Chris Simms, Luke McCown, Tim Rattay and Jared Allen – under contract for the 2006 season, Tampa Bay is interested in signing another veteran signal caller to replace Brian Griese, who agreed to a five-year contract with the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, according to ESPN.
Griese, 30, spent the past two seasons with Tampa Bay. He completed 64.3 percent of his passes and threw for 1,136 yards and tossed seven touchdowns and seven interceptions en route to getting the Bucs off to a 5-1 start before being sidelined with torn knee ligaments, an injury that required season-ending surgery.
The Bucs released Griese earlier this month in a salary-cap maneuver that freed up approximately $4.5 million worth of cap space for the team.
