    Trading Cam Sutton

    Hearing there were some cryptic messages on Cam's social media and that he unfollowed the Steelers. Could be traded today for an ILB

    This would be a shame IMHO. I like Cam and think heís got so much upside to his game at this point.

    If true, this would be highly disappointing because:

    • Steelers notorious difficulties in finding and developing DB talent
    • Haden is no spring chicken and will need to be moved or cut in a year or so
    • coaching staff doesn't believe Spillane & UGIII are solutions for the defense (or that they won't hold up for the rest of the season)
    • In very limited action Sutton has displayed playmaking ability; 2 passes defense and 8 tackles

    Sutton will be and UFA after this year. The Steelers probably won't be able to resign him. It might be worth a trade if they can add some speed to the middle of the defense.

    My son came running down to me late last night to tell me about it. He also showed me something else.....The Wikipedia page of Stephon Gilmore now showed he was an NFL defensive back for.....wait for it....the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was not up for long before it was switched back. Now, we all know that anyone can edit a wiki page but that was what he was excited about and waiting to hear about now.

    That being said, I can't see the team trading Sutton without getting an upgrade at corner in return. There are two obvious reasons for this:

    1) No team who is liquidating a stud linebacker is seeking out a slot corner who is a UFA at the end of the year.

    2) Maybe the Steelers need to offset salary in order to fit a new acquisition under the cap? Sutton has a salary of $825K this year and about half way through the season, which leaves less than $450K remaining. Not much relief to be had, I'm sure there are other ways to get it done without weakening the DB position of a contender.

    If Sutton is being moved out the Steelers will receive a corner in the deal.

    If he isn’t traded I wonder if they talk about his cryptic tweets?

    I know it’s the era we live in but these dudes are way too quick to post on Twitter. Maybe it’s done to get support and show the team the fans think it’s a mistake.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    In a Possible SuperBowl year....no way the Steelers trade away a Key Defensive Back/Insurance policy.
    Hilton missed the game last week....Sutton can play ball. Worry about 2021 in March Please.

    I like Sutton and think he would be a cheaper option than Hilton if we can bring one of them back next season.

    But if we don't think we can bring him back, I think it could be good asset management depending on what we'd get back.
