Steven Nelson still playing with a chip on his shoulder despite his successes

Prior to the 2019 season the Pittsburgh Steelers made a strong play in free agency when they signed cornerback Steven Nelson to the biggest free agent contract in team history.

The fan base was surprised, considering many weren’t familiar with Nelson’s work with the Kansas City Chiefs. Nonetheless, Nelson was rock solid for the Steelers in 2019, and although he didn’t bring in the interceptions many hoped, he was so strong quarterbacks often never threw to his side of the field.

Throughout it all, Nelson kept a giant chip on his shoulder.
