McQuistan attended and played football at Lebanon High School in Lebanon, Oregon, earning second-team All-Valley League honors as a junior defensive lineman. In his last year, he was moved to the offensive line and earned honorable mention All-Valley League honors as an offensive tackle and punter.
McQuistan accepted a scholarship from Weber State University but was declared academically ineligible in 2002. He played baseball for one season at Edmonds Community College. In 2003, he enrolled at Weber State and sat out the season as an academic redshirt.
Dallas Cowboys (first stint)
McQuistan was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the seventh round (211th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft. He made the team over the previous year starter Rob Petitti. As a rookie, he was declared inactive for the first 15 games of the season.
In 2008, he played mainly on special teams. The next year, he was inactive for the first nine games until Marc Colombo was lost for the season with a broken left fibula, he was activated for the remaining seven games, playing mainly on special teams and as a backup.
During his time with the team he was a backup offensive tackle and played special teams. He was traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a conditional sixth round draft choice on September 3, 2010. The teams were going to switch 2011 sixth-round draft positions if the Dolphins had the worst record (and higher pick), eventually no exchange was made because that condition wasn't met.
In 2010, he appeared in all 16 games with a career-high eight starts for the Miami Dolphins. At the end of the season his contract was due to expire, and the Dolphins chose to not re-sign him, releasing McQuistan to free agency.
Tennessee Titans (first stint)
New Orleans Saints
