Pasztor, 27, wound up signing on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2012. He lasted just a few months in Minnesota before the Jaguars signed him to their practice squad.
The Browns claimed Pasztor off of waivers from the Jaguars at the start of the 2015 season and brought him back on a one-year exclusive rights contract. He signed with the Falcons as an unrestricted free agent in August of last year.
The Falcons elected to re-sign Pasztor to a one-year $880,00 deal back in March but wound up waiving him at the end of the preseason.
In 2017, Pasztor appeared in seven games for the Falcons.

Unfortunately, Kansas City elected to cut Escobar loose coming out of the preseason. Escobar had a brief stint with the Ravens last year before signing a futures contract with the Browns this past January.
After being cut loose by Cleveland, Escobar signed on with the Dolphins in April. He was released coming out of the preseason but returned to Miami last week.
