Flozell’s Replacement

I am keeping a eye out second year backup tackle Pat McQuistan.

Adams is not 100 percent recovered from an offseason surgery so McQuistan has been running with the first team at left tackle.

“This offseason he really came on and was pleasantly surprising in the mini camps,” says offensive line coach, Tony Sparano, “So putting him in there right now is really more curiosity than anything else. I want to see if this guy is the next guy in the game. As it looks right now, I feel pretty good about him.”

I caught up with McQuistan after the teams second practice and he tried to downplay his prospects of the being the man who protects Romo’s blindside as a future starter, “I look at it rep by rep. Just taking snaps.”

McQuistan was inactive for 15 games in his rookie season last year. The club expects the former seventh round draft pick to make a great improvement this fall.

“I really do,” Sparano told me with with confidence, “Pat was a pleasant surprise last year. He really came on well towards the end of the year. Every day in practice this guy has to block Demarcus Ware, every..single…day, that was his job.”
