Former Steeler Steve Nelson took to social media on Tuesday to express thanks to the Steelers organization, supporters, and, of course, his haters.

Last week, Pittsburgh permitted Nelson to seek a trade, but he was instead released without a suitor.

It’s safe to say that had the Steelers’ salary cap not been in disarray largely due to declining revenues league-wide, Nelson would be with Pittsburgh for at least another season.

In Nelson’s final season in Pittsburgh, he posted two interceptions, nine pass breakups, a fumble recovery and 48 tackles.

Nelson will be missed by some in Pittsburgh. Otherwise, it’s next man up. Who that next man will be is cause for concern.
