Professional career[edit]

Philadelphia Eagles[edit]

Paschal was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in May 2007. He was released by the team at the end of training camp and subsequently re-signed to the practice squad, where he spent the first nine weeks of the season. On November 7, he was signed to the active roster after former Iowa Hawkeyes teammate and fellow safety Sean Considine was placed on Injured Reserve.

Paschal was released by the Eagles during final cuts on August 30, 2008.

Atlanta Falcons[edit]

After spending the 2008 season out of football, Paschal was signed to a future contract by the Atlanta Falcons on January 7, 2009. He was released on May 15, 2009.

Baltimore Ravens[edit]

Paschal was signed to the practice squad of the Baltimore Ravens on November 18, 2009. The move reunited him with Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, who was the defensive backs coach for the Eagles when Paschal played there in 2007. Paschal was promoted to the active roster on December 19 when defensive tackle Brandon McKinney was placed on injured reserve. He was waived on December 22 and re-signed to the practice squad when the team signed safety Keith Fitzhugh. On December 26, Paschal was promoted to the active roster again. He was placed on injured reserve on August 23, 2011, due to a quadriceps injury. He was waived from injured reserve on August 25.
