New CB Steven Nelson Believes His Toughness, Relentlessness And Work Ethic Attracted Steelers To Him

The Pittsburgh Steelers officially signed former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson to a three-year contract on Thursday and not long after that he was introduced to the local media via a short press conference. During the question and answer session on Thursday, Nelson was asked what traits he has that probably most attracted the Steelers to him in free agency.

“My toughness” Nelson said. “I feel like my toughness, my relentlessness, my work ethic, I feel like that’s what pretty much attracted them.”

Last season with the Chiefs, Nelson, a former third-round draft pick out of Oregon State, played primarily right outside cornerback.
