Sutton’s potential fit with the Steelers stems from his impressive track record as one of Russell Wilson’s top targets during his tenure with the Broncos, per Steelers Depot. Having established chemistry with Wilson, Sutton could seamlessly transition into the Steelers’ offense and serve as a reliable No. 2 option alongside top receivers.
