Austin William Pasztor (born November 26, 1990) is an American football offensive tackle who is currently a free agent. He played college football at Virginia and was signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

College career[edit]

Pasztor finished his college eligibility with the Virginia Cavaliers.[1] He was selected fourth overall by the Edmonton Eskimos in the 2012 CFL Draft. He was ranked as the fourth best player in the Canadian Football League’s Amateur Scouting Bureau final rankings for players eligible in the 2012 CFL Draft.[2]

Professional career[edit]

Minnesota Vikings[edit]

On April 29, 2012, Pasztor signed with the Minnesota Vikings. On August 31, 2012 as the Vikings reduced their roster down to league maximum of 53 players, he was released.[3]

Jacksonville Jaguars[edit]

Pasztor was signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad on September 17, 2012. He was promoted to the active roster on December 14. He started three games for the Jaguars in 2012.

On October 2, 2013 the Jaguars announced that they had traded starting left tackle Eugene Monroe to the Baltimore Ravens. Monroe's left tackle position was filled by Luke Joeckel, paving the way for Pasztor to become the team's starting right tackle despite the fact he had been primarily used at guard in the past.

He was released by the Jaguars on September 5, 2015.[4]

Cleveland Browns[edit]

Pasztor was claimed off of waivers by the Cleveland Browns on September 6, 2015.[5] On March 22, 2016, Pasztor was offered a one-year tender. He signed his tender on April 4.[6]
