Examining The Trade Value Of Steelers CB Steven Nelson

The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently looking to trade cornerback Steven Nelson as of Friday and while surprising, one would think that they’ll be able to find a partner to take him off their hands in the next week. What, however, can we expect the Steelers to get in return for Nelson should they find a team willing to deal for him?

For starters, Nelson is currently only under contract through the 2021 season so that’s a bit of a handicap when it comes to trading him now. Additionally, he’s set to earn $8.25 million in 2021 and that would be a cap charge that would be rough for most teams to absorb right now with the league-wide number going down considerably this year.
