Steelers Sign C Lucas Crowley, Waived/Injured C Mike Matthews

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Tuesday that they’ve signed C Lucas Crowley to a contract and waived C Mike Matthews with an injury designation.

Should Matthews pass through waivers unclaimed, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list on Wednesday.

Crowley, 22, signed a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina a few months ago. He stands to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the agreement.

Floyd wound up going undrafted out of Citadel back in May and eventually signed on with the Cardinals, but was unfortunately waived a few weeks ago.

During the 2015 season, Floyd recorded 91 tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks, two forced fumbles, a recovery, three interceptions and two pass defenses.

Matthews, 23, is the son of Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews and the brother of Falcons LT Jake Matthews. He originally signed on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M back in May of last year.

However, the Browns waived Matthews at the start of the regular season and he sat out the entire year. The Steelers signed him to a future/reserve contract this past February.
