It's certainly not at its best quality after a year in a freezer, but it won't kill anyone. Stuff that stays truly frozen will have halted bacterial growth, but there's no stopping the enzymes in the meat (or any other food) from slowly breaking down over time. The USDA recommends 4-12 months maximum freezing time for the best quality of steaks.
