The Atlanta Falcons drafted Chris Lindstrom in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft three seasons ago, and it appears the former Boston College standout will be sticking around through 2023 at the very least.

According to a report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on Monday, the Falcons will pick up Lindstrom’s fifth-year option.

Lindstrom has been stellar over the last three seasons, progressing each year. In 2021, he earned a Pro Football Focus grade of 83.7, and run-blocking grade of 87.6.

The Falcons will not be picking up right tackle Kaleb McGary’s fifth-year option, Fowler has since reported.
