The Browns offensive line just got a little bit more versatile. Paul McQuistan, who started 14 games for the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks re-joined the Browns, where he spent part of the 2010 season but did not play in a game.

A 6’6″, 315-lb. offensive lineman in his ninth NFL season out of Weber State, McQuistan was originally a third-round pick by Oakland in the 2006 NFL Draft.

McQuistan has experience starting at left tackle, left guard and right guard during his career. He has appeared in 83 games with 52 starts.

McQuistan appeared in 35 games with the Raiders from 2006-09. He also spent time on the active rosters of Jacksonville (2009) and Cleveland (2010) but did not appear in a game.

He signed with Seattle in 2011 and appeared in all 48 games over three seasons, with 40 starts. He also saw action in all five Seattle postseason games with two starts.

In 2013, he started eight games at left tackle and six at left guard. During the postseason, he rotated at left guard.

McQuistan’s twin brother, Pat, was a seventh-round pick by Dallas in 2006 and spent time last season with Tennessee.
