The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with cornerback Steven Nelson, who was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers in March.

Nelson brings experience to a revamped Eagles secondary.

Nelson, 28, has started 68 of 82 games played in his career. He spent the past two seasons in Pittsburgh after he was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs and played in Kansas City for four seasons.

He has seven interceptions, 291 tackles, a fumble forced and four fumble recoveries in his career. He had four interceptions in 2018 for the Chiefs.

In April’s draft, the Eagles selected Zech McPhearson out of Texas Tech in the fourth round to help shore up the cornerback position.
