He has played in 24 career games. 

Nelson, 28, was a seventh-round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2014 and has played in 61 NFL games with 116 tackles and one sack.

He appeared in all 16 games for Denver in 2014, '15 and '16. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent after the 2017 seasons but then was cut in a salary cap move. He also has been with the Falcons and Buccaneers.

He returned to Denver last season and played in seven games last season with two starts before his season ended with a torn biceps.
