GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers signed quarterback Seneca Wallace just days after he was released by San Francisco, Green Bay's opening-game opponent.
And they added more 49ers experience to their practice squad by signing former Wisconsin QB Scott Tolzien to that unit.
Wallace is entering his 10th pro season, and replaces B.J. Coleman as the backup for Aaron Rodgers. Coleman was released Monday.
Wallace left the 49ers last week and San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said the quarterback was "not going to continue to play football." Wallace apparently is not retiring and was with the Packers for Monday's practice.
Tolzien, a former Fremd High School star, was also released by the 49ers after spending two seasons under Jim Harbaugh. Joining Tolzien on the Green Bay practice squad: guard Bryan Collins, wide receivers Charles Johnson and Myles White, cornerback James Nixon, and tight end Jake Stoneburner.
