With the NFL Free Agency period about to get underway, the Detroit Lions made their first semi-splash move of the offseason as they signed Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cam Sutton to a three year deal.
Per NFL insider Ian Rapaport, the Sutton deal is for $33 million, with $22.5 million in guaranteed money.
Sutton comes to Detroit after spending six seasons with the Steelers, two as of Pittsburgh’s starting cornerbacks.
The former third-round pick out of the Tennessee quietly put up one of the better seasons for a corner which puts him with the likes of James Bradberry, Sauce Gardner, and AJ Terrell.
In his career, Sutton has recorded eight interceptions, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
Along with the re-signing of defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs, Cma will be joining an improving, but young defense led by the likes of edge rushers James Houston and Aidan Hutchinson, linebackers Malcolm Rodriguez and Derrick Barnes, and defensive backs Jeff Okudah and Tracy Walker.
