With it being late February, many players have already started training for the 2021 season. Zach Banner just began training in Redondo Beach Calif. and Steven Nelson has been training in Arizona the last few weeks.
"I started my training back, started my diet back," Nelson told Teresa Varley of Steelers.com. "I am running like a well-oiled machine. I am preparing myself to be the best version of me. I am going into the last year of my contract. Not knowing what to expect, but hopefully I can be around for a long time. You hear Pittsburgh Steelers and it screams football. The city, everybody is about the football team in Pittsburgh. You feel that when you are walking around town. When everybody is about the team, that feels pretty good. There are so many great things I could say. I am just going to approach this year like I do any other year, work hard and see what happens."
Nelson also told Varley that he's looking forward to working with new defensive backs coach Grady Brown.
"From what I have heard, he has a good resume," Nelson said of Brown. "He reached out to the defensive back group and introduced himself, said it's an honor to work with us as a whole. We welcomed him and will be glad to work with him. Hopefully that will help us to improve to get to No. 1 in the NFL."
