Experienced CB Steven Nelson Announces Retirement

Steven Nelson, a veteran cornerback who has played in the NFL for nine seasons, has announced his retirement from the league. Despite receiving interest from several teams including the Texans, Raiders, Giants, Rams, Commanders and Dolphins, Nelson has decided to step away from the game in order to spend more time with his pregnant wife Monica and their family. In addition to focusing on his family, Nelson plans to pursue various business ventures.

Nelson’s decision to retire comes after a successful career that saw him drafted by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Over the years he played for several teams including the Steelers, Eagles and most recently the Texans. Last season he recorded a career-high five interceptions and throughout his career he amassed impressive numbers including 13 interceptions, 87 passes defended and two forced fumbles among others.

In an interview with Aaron Wilson of KPRC, Nelson expressed his pride in his football career and the journey that led him to where he is today. He reflected on his humble beginnings in a small town and how attending junior college ultimately led him to play in the NFL. Nelson acknowledged the hardships he faced and overcame during his journey but emphasized the importance of spending time with loved ones and expressing gratitude for opportunities football has provided him.

While Nelson has announced his retirement he has not entirely ruled out a potential return to football in future. For now he is focused on enjoying time with his family and pursuing other interests outside of sports.
