Lions release CB Cameron Sutton amid criminal allegations

The Detroit Lions released starting cornerback Cameron Sutton on Thursday, a day after authorities in Florida announced they were looking for him following allegations of aggravated battery-domestic violence.

The Lions posted a one-sentence announcement of his release on social media without further detail.

The sheriff’s office in Hillsborough County, Fla., said Wednesday that Sutton was being sought in the case and described the Jeep Grand Wagoneer that he was believed to be driving. The public was asked to contact the office if Sutton or the vehicle were spotted.

The Detroit Free Press reported Thursday that Sutton allegedly was involved in a domestic dispute on March 7 in Lutz, Fla. When law enforcement arrived at the scene, Sutton was not there, and they have not been able to locate him.

The Lions issued a statement on Wednesday that said team officials had just learned of the warrant.

“We became aware of the ongoing legal situation involving Cam Sutton this morning,” the statement read. “We will continue to monitor the situation and will not have further comment at this time.”

Sutton, 29, joined the Lions last season on a three-year, $33 million deal signed in March 2023 after six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

He started all 17 regular-season games with the Lions, posting 65 tackles, an interception, one forced fumble and six passes defensed. He started Detroit’s three playoff games as well, adding eight tackles and breaking up three passes.
