Steven Nelson signs with Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles signed Steven Nelson Sunday to a one-year deal worth more than $4 million, according to Jeremy Fowler.

Fantasy Impact

Nelson's entering his seventh season. He's missed two games the past three seasons - two with the Pittsburgh Steelers, one with the Kansas City Chiefs. Nelson's set to compete for the No. 2 cornerback slot with the Eagles. The cornerback totaled 109 total tackles, 17 passes defensed, and three interceptions the past two seasons with the Steelers, according to Eagles Insider Dave Spadaro. Pro Football Focus ranked Nelson No. 36 out of 82 cornerbacks in their grading system last season.

Steven Nelson released by the Pittsburgh Steelers

Per Field Yates of ESPN, the Steelers have released CB Steven Nelson after failing to trade him.

Fantasy Impact

After publicly asking the Steelers to "not hold him hostage" Nelson has gotten his wish as he has been cut by Pittsburgh. Nelson, 28-years old, and the Steelers seemingly could not agree to a long-term extension which is what lead to the two sides parting ways. The release of Nelson clears up $8.25M in cap space for the Steelers. In 2020, Nelson had 15 starts during which he totaled 68 tackles and two interceptions. The veteran CB will likely find a new home relatively quickly.

The Chiefs are just adding depth and Nelson, although not of great size or speed, can help in situational coverages or the slot.

Fantasy Impact

He'll back up Sean Smith and if Smith bolts for Free Agency then Nelson is the backup plan.
