NFL Owners Meeting Prompts Questions Over Former Lions Cornerback Cam Sutton’s Disappearance and Arrest

Cam Sutton has been contacted by Mike Tomlin

After five days of being missing, former Detroit Lions cornerback Cam Sutton remains unaccounted for with no updates on his whereabouts. Just 24 hours after news broke that a warrant had been issued for his arrest in Florida for domestic battery by strangulation, a third-degree felony with a potential five-year prison sentence, Sutton was released by the Lions.

As the NFL owners meeting takes place this week, questions are expected to be directed at the Lions and Sutton’s former team, the Steelers. Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin stated he had reached out to Sutton regarding the off-field issues but declined to provide further details.

Drafted in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Sutton 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 for Sutton to bounce back from a challenging previous season with the addition of new defensive backs to the roster. However, his disappearance has raised concerns about his well-being and whether he will ever return to football.
