Steelers To Retain CB Cameron Sutton

Despite an unfavorable cap situation, the Steelers have found some room to keep one of their own free agents off the market.

They reached a deal to retain cornerback Cameron Sutton, according to’s Tom Pelissero (on Twitter). Sutton will stay in Pittsburgh on a two-year, $9MM pact.

The Steelers are expected to let a few higher-profile free agents walk, with JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner and Bud Dupree almost certainly on their way out. But a deal for a role player like Sutton figures to help out amid an offseason cap crunch.

Sutton has worked as a rotational cog in Pittsburgh, having started just eight games since the Steelers drafted him in the 2017 third round. Six of those starts came last season. The Steelers also face the prospect of losing longtime slot corner Mike Hilton, making corner a potential area to address for the defending AFC North champions.
