Cardinals re-sign OT McQuistan, release CB Butler

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals have re-signed offensive tackle Pat McQuistan and released cornerback Crezdon Butler.

The move gives the Cardinals another option on their struggling offensive line, which has given up 22 sacks in the past three games.

The Cardinals had released McQuistan Sept. 25 after he was inactive the first three games of the season. The 6-foot-6, 317-pound lineman is in his seventh NFL season with stints in New Orleans, Miami and Dallas.

McQuistan played in 10 regular season games and both postseason contests for New Orleans last year after appearing in all 16 games, eight as a starter, for Miami in 2010.

A seventh-round draft pick of Dallas out of Weber State in 2006, he has played in 66 NFL games, eight as a starter.

Nationals to introduce 'Kids Eat Free' program for the rest of the summer

What's better than spending a summer evening at a baseball game? Spending a summer evening at a baseball game and getting free food, that's what!

From July 22 to September 2, the Nationals are introducing a "Kids Eat Free" program, allowing any member of the Jr. Nats Kids Club age 12 or under to get a free meal at a Nats home game.

The meal includes a hot dog, the choice of chips or applesauce, and a soda or bottled water. According to the Nats, the meal is a $17 value. 

“We’re trying to find ways to make our experience as family-friendly as possible,” Nationals EVP of business operations Jake Burns told Front Office Sports. “This idea was borne out of brainstorming of things we could do to get families in the door or provide a better experience to existing families, and we found a way to attract new fans to the ballpark and strengthen the relationship with those existing fans.” 

Take your kids out to the ballpark, folks. You get to introduce them to America's pastime and save some money!
