Cam Sutton has been contacted by Mike Tomlin

Cam Sutton, a former Detroit Lions cornerback, has been missing for five days after being released by the team just 24 hours after news broke that a warrant had been issued for his arrest in Florida for domestic battery by strangulation. The potential five-year prison sentence for this third-degree felony has caused speculation and concern over Sutton’s well-being.

Sutton, drafted in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, has had a successful seven-year career with nine interceptions in 101 games. In his first season with the Lions in 2023, he appeared in 17 games, recording 65 tackles, four tackles for loss, six pass defenses, and one interception. The expectation was that Sutton would bounce back from a challenging previous season with the addition of new defensive backs to the roster.

However, after news of his arrest broke, Detroit plans to void Sutton’s $10.5 million guaranteed contract for the 2024 season. Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin stated he had reached out to Sutton regarding off-field issues but declined to provide further details. As a result of this incident, questions are expected to be directed at the Lions and Sutton’s former team during the upcoming NFL owners meeting.
