Ex-Steelers CB Steven Nelson finds new NFL home

Originally posted at USA Today Sports Steelers Wire

So much for bringing cornerback Steven Nelson back to Pittsburgh.

Per source of ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Nelson has signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles valued north of $4 million.

The Pittsburgh Steelers cut Nelson in March after he claimed they were holding him hostage.

If there’s a concern with the Steelers’ defense, it’s at the inexperienced cornerback position. It would’ve been ideal to bring Nelson back for a season — while Cam Sutton (8 starts) and James Pierre (0 starts) have promise, experience trumps hope every time.

Instead, it’s looking like the team may just roll with what it has — at least until cutdowns.
