It's the end of an era with the Pittsburgh Steelers, as cornerback Cam Sutton has departed to sign a free agent contract with the Detroit Lions.
Originally selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Steelers, Sutton would become a full time starter in 2021.
He wrote the following message on Instagram as a thank you to Steelers fans:
"It Was All A Dream… Truly Thank The City of Pittsburgh, The Rooney Family & Steelers For EVERYTHING. It’s Been a WHOLE LOTTA GANGG Over The Years And Gone Always Remain The Same. You Know My Heart."
While explaining why he decided to sign with the Lions, Sutton expressed his gratitude for his time in Pittsburgh.
“Obviously, being in Pittsburgh for the foundation of the first six (seasons), you know, that was its era,” Sutton said. “It was a beautiful time. Now, it’s just really just time to step back and see what all works … see where you’re valued, and see where you’re loved.”
“When it was time to really get things going, Detroit, the family, they came strong, man,” Sutton said. “It just made sense, from the top down in the organization … It’s always been a tough-nosed, gritty team. These are styles that I’m a part of. That’s my identity.”
We'll miss Sutton with the Steelers!
