Former Steelers CB Announces Retirement.

PITTSBURGH — Former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Steven Nelson is retiring from the NFL ahead of the 2024 season, as reported by Aaron Wilson of KPRC2.

Nelson played two seasons with the Steelers from 2020 to 2021, starting all 30 games during that period. In his time with Pittsburgh, he recorded three interceptions and 17 pass deflections, working alongside fellow cornerbacks Joe Haden and Mike Hilton.

Nelson’s departure from the Steelers remains a hot topic, especially after he criticized his former team on a podcast, claiming they haven’t found a suitable cornerback since his exit. This statement was made before the rise of Joey Porter Jr.

“A good laugh at it is like. Ever since I left, they ain’t found a corner yet. They’re still searching. High and low, they’re searching for mother******s,” he said.

Nelson, 31, played nine seasons in the NFL, including four with the Kansas City Chiefs, one with the Philadelphia Eagles, and two with the Houston Texans. He concluded his career with 115 starts, 13 interceptions, and 78 pass deflections.
