Holmgren plucks Seneca out of Seattle

RENTON, Wash. - Mike Holmgren is already making deals with his former team. The Seattle Seahawks traded backup quarterback Seneca Wallace to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2011 undisclosed draft pick.

A Seahawks spokesman confirmed the deal Monday night.

Wallace spent his entire seven-year career with the Seahawks, and was always a favorite of Holmgren's when he was Seattle's coach. Holmgren is now the Browns' team president, and has brought Wallace to Cleveland.

Wallace's best season was 2008 when he started eight games in Holmgren's last season and threw for 1,532 yards and 11 touchdowns. Wallace started two games last season while starter Matt Hasselbeck was injured. Wallace was also sometimes used as a wide receiver and returner in Seattle.
