Cam Sutton, a former Detroit Lions cornerback, has been missing for five days with no updates on his whereabouts. Just 24 hours after news broke that a warrant had been issued for his arrest in Florida for domestic battery by strangulation, a third-degree felony with a potential five-year prison sentence, he was released by the Lions. As a result of this incident, the Lions plan to void Sutton’s $10.5 million guaranteed contract for the 2024 season.

Concerns have risen over Sutton’s well-being as he has not turned himself in or made contact since the news broke. Speculation is that he may be facing additional charges or is awaiting trial. The NFL owners meeting is taking place this week, and questions are expected to be directed at the Lions and Sutton’s former team, the Steelers. Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin stated that he had reached out to Sutton regarding off-field issues but declined to provide further details.

Drafted in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Sutton has had an impressive seven-year career with nine interceptions in 101 games. In his first season with the Lions in 2023, he appeared in 17 games, recording 65 tackles, four tackles for loss, six pass defenses, and one interception. The expectation was for Sutton to bounce back from a challenging previous season with the addition of new defensive backs to the roster. However, it remains unclear what led to his disappearance and whether he will ever return to football again.
