Saints Nation: Seneca Wallace to Back Up Drew Brees?

Luke McCown's strangehold on the backup spot behind Drew Brees didn't last long as the Saints signed veteran Seneca Wallace to a one year contract today. Color me surprised. I totally expected Luke McCown to see some serious competition, but I never saw that person being Seneca Wallace.

Wallace is 32 and has been in the league 10 years mostly as a backup. He has 31 career touchdowns and 18 career interceptions. My sense is that he is the overwhelming favorite to win the backup job over McCown, but they are both decorated collegiate players and seasoned pros that will have an honest competition for the role behind Brees.
