In a transaction corresponding to Wednesday night’s release of guard Robert Gallery, the Seahawks announced that they have agreed to terms with offensive lineman Paul McQuistan.

McQuistan started 10 games last season, four at left tackle, three at right guard, and three more at left guard. That kind of versatility is appealing when teams are searching for backups on the offensive line.

McQuistan won’t enter the 2012 season as a starter, but he is familiar with position coach Tom Cable’s schemes and shouldn’t struggle to land a roster spot.
