Preseason star LB Vic So'oto among Steeler cuts

The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A pair of the splash plays wasn't enough for linebacker Vic So'oto to keep his job.

The Pittsburgh Steelers made So'oto one of 15 cuts on Tuesday as the team trimmed the roster to 75.

So'oto forced a fumble that teammate Howard Jones returned for a touchdown in the exhibition opener against the New York Giants. So'oto did it again a week later, stripping Buffalo quarterback Ryan Nassib in the final seconds. Jones jumped on the ball to set up the winning field goal.

The Steelers also cut offensive linemen Chris Elkins and Emmanuel McCray, defensive linemen Hebron Fangupo and Brian Arnfelt, cornerbacks Devin Smith and Lewis Toler, wide receivers C.J. Goodwin and Kashif Moore, running backs Jordan Hall, Miguel Maysonet and Tauren Poole, tight end Eric Waters, safety Jordan Dangerfield and long snapper Luke Ingram.
