MAY 5: It’s a one-year, minimum salary benefit contract for Pascoe, with a base salary of $730K and a cap number of $570K, per Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com (on Twitter).
MAY 1: The Falcons have officially signed free agent tight end Bear Pascoe, the team announced today in a press release. Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports had reported earlier that Pascoe was meeting with and working out for the Falcons.
Pascoe, 28, spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Giants, accumulating 38 total receptions in his stint with the club. Pascoe, who spends most of his time in pass protection and blocking for the run, isn’t the type of player who will step in to replace the production of the retired Tony Gonzalez, but he’s a solid depth piece.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but it figures to be a minimum salary contract for Pascoe.
