So, why did the Seahawks trade backup quarterback Seneca Wallace to the Cleveland Browns on Monday?
New coach Pete Carroll fielded that exact question this morning during an appearance at the Business Journal Live series at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle.
Asked if he would like to address that topic, Carroll cracked, “No.” But he then elaborated, to a point.
“Seneca had a great career here, and I’m sure the people in the community appreciated his hard work,” Carroll said. “He’s a great guy and great for the community. But for us, it’s time for us to move on. And he has a good opportunity. Mike (Holmgren, Browns president and former Seahawks coach) wanted him in a big way there.”
