The Pittsburgh Steelers are shoring up their defensive backfield, signing former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson to a three-year, $25.5 million dollar deal.

Nelson played four seasons with the Chiefs, with his most recent campaign being the best of his career. Nelson grabbed four interceptions and posted 68 tackles.

The Steelers’ secondary ranked near the bottom third in the NFL in opponent pass yards per game last season.
