Back in April, the 29-year-old Sutton went into a pretrial diversion program to take care of a domestic violence case, according to court records per ESPN. Following turning himself in, doing so with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, Smith was hit with a misdemeanor battery charge. He was wanted by police for weeks over the issue.

After investigating the incident, the NFL ruled that Sutton violated their personal conduct policy. According to a report Monday from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Sutton will not appeal his discipline.

When Sutton was arrested, he was a member of the Detroit Lions, however, the franchise cut him after finding out about his arrest warrant. At that particular time, Sutton had one year completed in a three-year, $33 million contract he inked in 2023.

In his sole season with the Lions, Sutton was a starter in every game, tallying one interception, one forced fumble and 50 tackles.

In June, he signed a one-year deal with Pittsburgh, where he spent the first six seasons of his career.
