Veteran Cornerback Steven Nelson Announces Retirement

The veteran cornerback Steven Nelson has announced his retirement after nine seasons in the NFL, according to a report by Aaron Wilson of KPRC. Despite receiving interest from several teams including the Texans, Raiders, Giants, Rams, Commanders, and Dolphins, Nelson ultimately decided to step away from football to spend more time with his pregnant wife, Monica, and his family.

Nelson expressed pride in his accomplishments in football and the journey that led him to where he is today. He began in a small town with limited resources but worked his way up through junior college to Oregon State and eventually to the NFL. Nelson emphasized his gratitude for the opportunities and challenges that shaped his career.

Originally drafted by the Chiefs in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Nelson spent four seasons in Kansas City before playing for the Steelers, Eagles, and Texans in subsequent seasons. His final year in the NFL was marked by a career-high five interceptions, one of which was returned for an 82-yard touchdown in the wild-card playoff win against the Browns. Over his 130-game career with 115 starts, Nelson recorded 13 interceptions, 87 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, one sack, 456 tackles
