Both players joined the club last season, signing one-year deals to provide key depth for the Falcons. With these extensions in place, McFadden and Pasztor will continue to provide that depth while also benefitting from the Falcons’ development plan, also known as Plan D.

Although McFadden did not play in a game for the Falcons last season, he has appeared in 34 games and made two starts since entering the league in 2013. In that time, McFadden, 27, has registered 31 tackles and two pass defenses.

Pasztor, 27, was signed by the Falcons prior to their second preseason game in 2017. He appeared in seven games for Atlanta last season, and he has accrued 43 starts throughout the course of his six-year career in the NFL.
