Steelers should extend cornerback Cameron Sutton
Cam Sutton is in the last year of his contract and I believe it should be extended. Here’s why the Steelers need to extend him.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have traditionally had trouble drafting corners but one corner they have hit on is Cameron Sutton. Now I’m not ready to say he is a star or anything like that, but he is capable of being a solid starter in the NFL. He can play the inside and the outside at the cornerback position and that really helps.
Some players could be on their way out at the cornerback position and so it would be nice to get some stability at the position. Joe Haden is in the last year of having most of his contract guaranteed and Mike Hilton has underperformed from early on in his career. Sutton could be a replacement for either.
The other thing to consider is that Sutton is the type of player you want to keep around. He is a very intelligent team guy. That can bode well for a guy as he ages into his career. He also doesn’t have much tread on him as he hasn’t been a starter for an extended period of time.
