Atlanta Falcons reach extension with Canadian OL Austin Pasztor

Canadian offensive lineman Austin Pasztor has reached a one-year contract extension agreement with the Atlanta Falcons.

After starting in all 16 games for the Cleveland Browns in 2016, Pasztor signed with Atlanta during training camp last season. He played in seven games as a backup tackle.

Pasztor, who stands six-foot-seven and 308 pounds, was drafted in the first round, fourth overall by the Edmonton Eskimos in 2012, but he’s spent his entire career in the NFL after going undrafted the same year.

He was in Minnesota Vikings training camp in 2012. Jacksonville picked him up in September of that year and he played three seasons with the Jaguars. Cleveland claimed Pasztor off waivers in September 2015 where he played two seasons.

The 27-year-old Langton, Ontario native has accrued 43 starts over 65 games throughout the course of his six-year career in the NFL.
