He later signed with the Raiders and was promoted to the active roster before being waived. McCrane was brought back by the Cardinals’ practice squad and made their active roster before he was waived and signed by the Steelers.

After being released by Pittsburgh, McCrane had a brief stint in the XFL with the New York Guardians. He spent the 2020 season on the Browns practice squad as the backup and emergency kicker. 

The Browns signed McCrane to a futures contract for the 2021 season but ended up cutting him in May. 

In 2018, McCrane appeared in five games for the Raiders, Cardinals, and Steelers. He made 8 of his 12 field goal attempts (66.7 percent) and converted all nine of his extra point attempts.
