Steelers set to ink ex-Lions CB Cameron Sutton Just a little over one month after being released by the Detroit Lions.

Just over a month after his release from the Detroit Lions following an arrest for alleged domestic battery by strangulation, cornerback Cameron Sutton has reportedly drawn interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

As reported by Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Omar Khan met with Sutton in Pittsburgh last week.

Originally a third-round pick of the Steelers in 2017, Sutton spent six seasons with Pittsburgh, featuring in 84 games (39 starts) during that tenure.

Sutton signed a three-year contract worth $33 million with $22.5 million guaranteed last offseason to strengthen the Lions’ secondary. He participated in all 17 games in his solitary season with the Lions, registering one interception, 65 tackles, and six passes defensed.

The Tennessee alum also played in all three playoff games for Detroit, recording seven tackles and three passes defensed in those matchups.

While it remains uncertain if Sutton will be eligible to play in 2024 due to ongoing legal matters, the Steelers are evidently exploring their options with him, for undisclosed reasons.
