Paul McQuistan SEA 5 Months
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 for the job 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 newly-signed Deuce Lutui will be in the mix.

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.
