Steelers Ink CB Steven Nelson to a Three Year Deal

Steven Nelson reportedly agreed to a three-year, $25.5 million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, a deal he will sign when the league’s new league year officially begins on Wednesday afternoon. Below are facts along with Joe Haden and several other Steelers’ reaction to the new acquisition.

The Steelers don’t usually make a big splash in free agency. Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Media reports that Steven Nelson is the biggest-money free agent the Steelers have enticed since safety Mike Mitchell in 2014.

Mitchell signed a five-year, $25 million deal with Pittsburgh but never became the playmaker the Steelers had hoped.

Nelson, 26, was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2015.

He played 52 games with 38 starts, making 174 tackles, four interceptions and 15 pass breakups in his career in Kansas City.

After falling a few plays short of reaching Super Bowl LIII, Steven Nelson will now look to help the Steelers return to the playoffs after missing the postseason in 2018 for the first time since 2013.
