Browns signed G/T Paul McQuistan.

McQuistan started 14 games for the Seahawks last season, operating at both left tackle and left guard. In Cleveland, he'll compete for a starting guard job and/or be a versatile reserve elsewhere. The Seahawks are going younger behind their starters on the left side, Russell Okung and James Carpenter.

Free agent G/T Paul McQuistan is visiting the Browns.

McQuistan, 31 next month, started 40 games the past three seasons for the Seahawks. He's capable of playing both guard and tackle but isn't particularly good at any spot. McQuistan would compete for the swing role in Cleveland.

Seahawks G/T Paul McQuistan's roster spot may be in jeopardy.

McQuistan, 30, is scheduled to count $3 million against the cap in the final year of his contract, and that's too much for a backup if LG James Carpenter can come back and reclaim the starting job. The Seahawks could also ask McQuistan to restructure his deal so he can stick around as a versatile reserve.

Seahawks OG Paul McQuistan triggered an escalator in his contract, upping his 2013 salary from $2 million to $3 million.

McQuistan signed a two-year deal last offseason, and he went on to start all 16 games with regular LG James Carpenter battling injuries and rookie RG J.R. Sweezy not performing. McQuistan, 30 in April, is much better suited in a backup role. He's moving in on the final year of his deal.

Paul McQuistan is penciled in as the Seahawks' starting left guard.

Frank Omiyale will also be in the mix, and Seattle is expected to add some offensive line help via the draft. Pro Football Focus graded McQusitan as average in 2011, but he was the top-rated guard on the Seahawks. John Moffitt is the favorite to start on the right side, but must fend off newly-signed Deuce Lutui.

Seahawks re-signed OG Paul McQuistan to a two-year, $4 million contract.

With Robert Gallery gone, McQuistan is needed for depth. He started 10 games a year ago and is capable of playing both guard and tackle.

With Jammal Brown's (hip) future with the team up in the air, the Redskins are expected to target a right tackle in free agency.

The Washington Post considers it the offense's biggest need, ahead of a playmaking wide receiver. Post beat writer Mike Jones suggests the Skins are high on journeyman free agent Paul McQuistan, who has experience in Seattle's zone-blocking system.

Seahawks signed OG Paul McQuistan to a reserve/future contract.

Paul and his brother Pat were drafted in 2006, the former going in the third round and the latter in the seventh. Pat has been a better pro. Paul hasn't started a game since 2007, while Pat closed 2010 as a first-teamer in Miami.

Browns waived OT Paul McQuistan.

DL Brian Sanford was signed from the practice squad to take McQuistan's spot on the 53-man roster. John St. Clair will start at right tackle for Cleveland, and will square off against the Jets' Shaun Ellis Week 10.

Jaguars signed OL Paul McQuistan.

The former Raiders' bust is getting another shot after being waived on Nov. 9. He'll give the Jags some depth at both guard and tackle.
Sat, Nov 21, 2009 04:27:00 PM

Raiders waived G/T Paul McQuistan.

McQuistan was a bust after Oakland made him the 69th overall pick in the 2006 draft. He was ineffective in 12 spot starts at guard and right tackle in his first two years. The Syracuse alum finally fell out of favor this season.
Mon, Nov 9, 2009 05:46:00 PM

Raiders placed OL Paul McQuistan (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season, and re-signed T Seth Wand.

Wand returns after being cut just hours prior to Oakland's regular season opener. McQuistan has been a bust since being drafted 69th overall in 2006.
