Wallace, who is 33, has completed 452 of 764 passes for 4,808 yards, 31 touchdowns and 18 interceptions during his NFL career.

Wallace will join Colt McCoy, Scott Tolzien and B.J. Daniels in the team's backup quarterback competition.

It was reported yesterday that the 49ers were showing interest in Wallace and that he might be brought in for a workout.
