Steelers Officially Terminate CB Steven Nelson's Contract

The Steelers have officially terminated CB Steven Nelson's contract after two seasons with the team.

The move is not surprising because last week the team granted him permission to seek a trade.

The announcement was made by the Steelers on Tuesday about an hour after Nelson tweeted, "Making a public announcement is a little out of my character, but you guys made your decision please don’t hold me hostage #dontholdmeback."

After the news broke, Nelson added, "Pittsburgh much love I appreciate the opportunity and the relationships I gained along the way Respect to a Class A organization from top down. Thank you to my day 1 supporters and can’t forget my haters you motivate me more than you know."
