Falcons re-sign Kaleb McGary to three-year deal

Atlanta drafted the Washington product No. 31 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Falcons have officially re-signed right tackle Kaleb McGary to a three-year deal worth $34.5 million, the organization announced on Thursday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was first to report the deal on March 14.

McGary has played four seasons with the Falcons after being drafted 31st overall in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft alongside fellow first-round pick Chris Lindstrom, who signed a five-year contract extension prior to the start of the 2023 league year.

With both McGary and Lindstrom's contracts now official, the Falcons keep the right side of their offensive line together after a productive 2022 season for the offensive line in Atlanta.

Specifically looking at McGary, the right tackle had career year in 2022, with Pro Football Focus grading his season at an 86.6 overall. McGary played 1,051 snaps last season, only allowing six sacks, and graded out at 91.6 in run-blocking. More so, he played a key role in helping Atlanta establish a top-3 rushing attack.

With McGary returning to Atlanta, core members of the Falcons' top-5 offensive line unit from last season will be playing together again in 2023. Left guard is the only uncertain spot at the moment, with Elijah Wilkinson set for unrestricted free agency. However, Matt Hennessy will be back in 2023 with a shot to take command.
