Breaking: With so much love and happiness steleers calls for a celebration as they finally inked down a significant short term deal.

Cornerback Cameron Sutton has signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team announced Wednesday.

Sutton’s deal is expected to be for the veteran minimum, league sources told ESPN.

Sutton, 29, who spent the first six years of his career in Pittsburgh, was released by the Detroit Lions earlier this offseason after the issuance of an arrest warrant for a domestic battery charge.

Although he cited the ongoing legal process for not expanding on questions about the arrest warrant and situation surrounding his release from Detroit, Sutton spoke publicly for the first time since that incident after Wednesday’s OTA practice in Pittsburgh.

Sutton responded, “My job is not to appeal to someone else,” in response to a query regarding his message to supporters who might have doubts about his seeming behavior.

“It is my responsibility to be the best version of myself. How can I show that to the public or others around me? I have complete control over that.

Thus, I never give a tale a second thought. I never worry about what other people think of me since, most of the time, they don’t really know me better than anyone else. It all comes down to your core values, your own identity as a person, and what you stand for. I raised my head. Adversity befalls everyone. Everyone experiences stuff.

The warrant was issued March 7 after police in Florida responded to a call at a house where Sutton allegedly battered a woman before fleeing the scene. He was released by the Lions on March 21, a day after the team learned of the warrant.

“We’re just moving on,” Lions team president Rod Wood said at league meetings in Orlando, Florida. “I want to make sure everybody knows, we didn’t release him because of anything related to the cap or money that we may owe him. It was the right thing to do for the organization.”

Sutton evaded law enforcement for more than three weeks after the warrant was issued before turning himself in in Hillsborough County (Florida) on March 31.

Although the initial warrant charged him with a felony, Sutton was formally charged with misdemeanor battery. Sutton entered a pretrial diversion program in April to resolve his case, according to the Hillsborough County records.
