Nelson has been a quality No. 2 corner for Pittsburgh and was cut primarily for salary reasons, so he could be a notable addition for a number of teams.
Nelson, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2015. He finished his four-year, $2.902 million rookie contract with the Chiefs before signing a three-year, $25 million contract with the Steelers in 2019.
Nelson was owed a base salary of $8,250,000 for the 2021 season when Pittsburgh released him.
In 2020, Nelson appeared in 15 games for the Steelers and recorded 48 tackles, two interceptions, a fumble recovery and nine passes defended. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 36 corner out of 121 qualifying players.
