Cincinnati Bengals are enthusiastic about former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Steven Nelson

CINCINNATI – The Bengals have signed three cornerbacks on the free hand this offseason but they may be looking for another defender.

Cincinnati is one of at least 14 NFL teams that have expressed an interest in Steven Nelson, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The 28-year-old is said to be waiting for “the right fit and opportunity”. The Texans, Bears, Eagles, and Bills have also shown interest in Nelson.

He had 48 tackles, two interceptions, and nine passes defended for Pittsburgh last year.

Cincinnati has already signed former Steelers Nickel cornerback Mike Hilton this off-season. They also brought it to Chidobe Awuzie and Eli Apple.

Awuzie and Hilton are expected to start alongside Trae Waynes.

It’s hard to imagine the Bengals making a deal with Nelson. They didn’t take a cornerback in the NFL Draft, but there was no way he was going to get past Wayne, Awuzie, or Hilton on the depth map.

The Chiefs selected Nelson in the third round (98th overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft. He spent four years in Kansas City before signing with Pittsburgh as a free agent in 2019. The Steelers released him in March.
