Cornerback Steven Nelson has not found a new team since being released by the Steelers in March, but one NFC East corner would like to see Nelson become his teammate this season.

Eagles corner Darius Slay posted a message on Twitter Tuesday that was directed at Nelson and said “that green will look good on ya” in reference to Philly’s uniform color. Nelson replied that “it could all be so simple my man.”

The suggestion from that reply is that Nelson would be up for joining forces with Slay as long as the Eagles hit the right price. There have been reports this offseason that the Eagles are interested in Nelson, but that they have different views on the right compensation.

Slay is the clear No. 1 corner for the Eagles and there’s little else settled in a group that also includes Kevon Seymour, Avonte Maddox, Craig James, fourth-round pick Zech McPhearson, and others.

  1. Not sure these guys think before they speak. When you recruit someone to play on your team your actually saying, what we have isn’t good your better. At least be straight up and say it directly to them. If you bring someone in, someone has to go.

  2. At this point I wouldn’t even be upset if the Eagles overpaid to get another corner in there. The pass defense has been abysmal, and they won’t give their young offense much of a chance if they’re constantly playing from behind like the past few seasons.

  3. Prefer Geron Conley former OSU CB and first round pick that has not panned out yet. Low prove it contract with Eagles makes sense

  4. It wouldn’t be overpaying at this point in free agency. Nobody has bitten on Nelson. He’ll be happy to have a job.
