2. Steven Nelson

Nelson moved around from the slot to outside in four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. While going out and getting a defender from the Chiefs does not sound like a great option he does present options that make him an interesting idea at a reduced price.

To start he is 15 months younger than Callahan and healthier than Callahan. While it may be surprising, Nelson had better coverage stats with 11 pass breakups and four interceptions compared to just two picks and four pass break ups from Callahan.

Nelson was picked on more but allowed an 82 passer rating compared to an 80 by Callahan. Nelson is not going to get big money playing for the defense he played for, but in a change of scenery could be a cheap find.
