A couple of moves involving ex-Seahawks

The NFL transactions for Friday are out, and there are none involving the Seahawks.

However, there are two involving former Seahawks as the Atlanta Falcons have signed linebacker Allen Bradford while the Cleveland Browns have released offensive lineman Paul McQuistan.

Bradford played one game this season for Seattle — at Kansas City, the last of the five missed by Bobby Wagner — and ended the year on the team’s practice squad. While Seattle signed every other member of its practice squad to a futures deal, the team let Bradford’s contract expire and he became a free agent.

He’ll be reunited in Atlanta with former Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who is now the head coach of the Falcons. He’ll also be reunited there with new Falcons’ DC Raheem Morris, who was the head coach at Tampa Bay in 2011 when the Bucs drafted Bradford in the sixth round.

As for McQuistan, Seattle decided not to re-sign him last off-season after he became a free agent and he signed a two-year deal with Cleveland worth $3 million.

But after starting 30 games for the Seahawks from 2011-13, he stated just once for the Browns in 2014. He was due a base salary of almost $1.4 million in 2015. He’ll be 32 next season, but might be a candidate for Seattle to bring back for some cheap, veteran depth up front.
