Steelers cornerback Cam Sutton banned eight games for an alleged domestic violence dispute

Cam Sutton, a safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers, has been suspended by the NFL for the first eight games of the 2024 season for breaking the personal conduct guideline of the organisation.
The league made the announcement on Monday, stating that Sutton, who will not receive compensation during the suspension, may request reinstatement on October 29.

Sutton’s involvement in an alleged domestic violence incident that occurred in Florida in March is the reason for the penalty.
After the charges were dropped from felonies to misdemeanours of battery in April, Sutton eventually turned himself in to the police and enrolled in a pretrial diversion programme. As part of his deal with the prosecutors, Sutton had to undergo a mental health assessment.
The ban resulted from the NFL’s independent inquiry into the incident.

After an arrest warrant was obtained, Sutton was cut by the Detroit Lions right away. Pittsburgh, where he spent his first six seasons in the league from 2017 to 22, provided him with a lifeline.

In June, Sutton inked a one-year contract with the Steelers. Sutton took part in organised team activities and minicamp, but he would not discuss the circumstances surrounding his arrest or the possible penalties the NFL might impose if it determines he broke the league’s personal conduct policy.

On the day he signed a contract with the Steelers, Sutton stated, “Adversity strikes everyone in life.” Therefore, it all comes down to how you handle it, how you have to go through those stages, and simply understanding who you are on an individual basis and refusing to let anyone else take away your light.
