Cleveland Browns Bring in OG Paul McQuistan for a Visit

The former Seattle Seahawk is coming off of a Super Bowl ring.

Last night, we made note of the fact that the Cleveland Browns were lining up DE Alex Carrington for a visit. Several local reporters confirmed today that the Browns met with Carrington, but another name was mentioned as well: OG Paul McQuistan.

McQuistan was a third-round pick in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. He spent three years with the Raiders and then some time with the Jaguars, before actually signing with the Browns for a month during the 2010 season. McQuistan then signed with the Seahawks in 2011, which is where he's been ever since -- he won a Super Bowl ring last year.

McQuistan has started 40 games over the past three years with the Seahawks, including 14 this past year. He did not start in any of the playoff games, though. In the NFC Championship and in the Super Bowl, he saw half the snaps in the lineup as part of a planed rotation by head coach Pete Carroll. He was one of Pro Football Focus' worst-rated free agent offensive lineman this offseason, scoring even way lower than Oniel Cousins did. Part of that might have had to do with the fact that he played some tackle and guard:

The team has to hope they never, ever have to start Paul McQuistan (-24.8) at left tackle again. It went very badly and he wasn’t much better at guard.
