Pittsburgh Steelers just announce a devastating news…..

Steelers Insider Shuts Down CB Reunion

One team insider believes the Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t looking at familiar faces.

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers were on the receiving end of bad news this past week, as Cameron Sutton was suspended by the NFL for the first 8 games of the season due to battery charges. With Sutton unable to return until Week 9, the Steelers will likely look to fill the void left by Sutton’s suspension.

Some have turned to two members of last years secondary in Patrick Peterson and Chandon Sullivan. Both now free agents, neither had a stellar 2023 campaign and were not retained by the team.

Brian Batko, writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, believes that a reunion for either of the two with the Steelers organization is unlikely. In an appearance on the 93.7 The Fan, Batko dished on what he believed the Steelers were thinking about both Sutton and their options.

“I still think that I wouldn’t bet on that because if, if they would’ve preferred that option, then why wouldn’t they have just done that instead of Sutton to begin with?” Batko said. “You wouldn’t even have had to deal with the bad look of signing him and the optics and the PR of it all. So that kind of makes me think that they actually prefer Sutton maybe as a player, or at least at the price point that they’re gonna have him and despite not having him now for the first eight games.”

Peterson, while an incredible defender for much of his career, has seen a visible regression in quality of play. His current ability has not been sufficient enough to garner a contract from any other team, so a move to the Steelers seems unlikely, especially this far along in the offseason.

Sullivan would find it difficult to integrate into the Steelers’ system this season, particularly with Donte Jackson joining the team.

It’s crucial to remember that Sutton’s suspension will not be paid for, meaning that his half-season reunion with the Steelers will be far less expensive than the $11 million the Lions paid him annually prior to cutting him because of his off-field problems. This offseason, he agreed to a veteran’s minimum contract.
