Sutton was drafted by the Steelers in 2017. He was with the team through the 2022 season before signing with the Lions as a free agent in 2023.

Months after he was released from the Lions, the Steelers signed him to a one-year contract. At the time he couldn’t talk about the case specifically, but said when it comes to any discipline from the NFL, whatever it comes down to, they’re ready to move on in that direction.

Sutton will be eligible for reinstatement on October 29 following the Steelers’ Week 8 game against the New York Giants.
