Steelers Waive CB Jack Tocho, K Matt McCrane


The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Thursday that they’ve waived K Matt McCrane and CB Jack Tocho.

Tocho, 23, is a former seven-round pick of the Vikings back in 2017. He signed a four-year, $2.47 million contract with the Vikings but was, unfortunately, cut loose as their trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

The Vikings brought Tocho back on a futures contract in 2018, but he was once again released at the start of the regular season. He had a brief stint on the Redskins’ practice squad before eventually signing on with the Steelers last month.

During his college career at North Carolina State, Tocho recorded 122 tackles, one sack, six interceptions, and 26 pass defenses over the course of four years and 45 games.

McCrane, 24, wound up signing on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State back in May. He signed a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Cardinals and was set to make a base salary of $485,000 for the 2018 season when he was waived coming out of the preseason.

McCrane had stints with the Raiders and Cardinals before signing on with the Steelers in December. 

In 2018, McCann appeared in five games for the Cardinals, Raiders and Steelers and converted 8 of 12 field goal attempts and all nine extra point tries.
