We found him in a column from Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. Hobson quotes Browns coach Eric Mangini talking about Wallace in saying, "You can put him in a game at other points, depending on the risk tolerance. And he can do some things with him and [Josh] Cribbs and Jerome [Harrison] and whoever else." Not exactly sure what "some things" means, but we could see the team expand their Wildcat offense a bit (it'd have to be renamed the Cyclone, after Iowa State); Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer says the team is "talking about" doing just that, although he does repeat the risk tolerance issue. In 2009, Cribbs (a former college QB) ran the formation for the Browns with varied success. Having Wallace back there increases the options and would give defensive coordinators nightmares.

I almost wish he was a third string quarterback so everyone wouldn't be so scared to actually use him. He spends so much time on the sideline "just in case" the starter goes down that he can't be used to his potential at all.
Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
From what I've heard, Seattle wanted to use him in a "Randle-El" role, however he didn't want to do that. That's why he ended up at ISU in the first place - everybody wanted him to be a DB, he wanted to be QB. I think he'd be better used if he was actually on the field.
