PITTSBURGH — The Falcons signed offensive tackle Austin Pasztor and released offensive lineman Marquis Lucas on Saturday.
Pasztor has made 43 starts and played 58 games over five seasons in the NFL.
Pasztor, who’s 6 feet 7 and 305 pounds, played three seasons with Jacksonville and two with Cleveland since coming out of Virginia in 2012. 

Behind starting tackles Jake Matthews and Ryan Schraeder, the Falcons now have a potential backup tackle with NFL starting experience in Pasztor.
Last season’s swing tackle, Tom Compton, signed with the Bears in free agency.

Lucas, 24, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia in 2016. Buffalo waived him, but the Vikings signed him to their practice squad.

The Falcons signed him to a contract in June.
