  Steelers | Lawrence Timmons not close to extension    Fri Jul 29, 02:26 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons isn't close to a contract extension, and he's slated to become a free agent at the end of the season.

Footballguys view: Timmons represents a 15 million dollar cap hit this year, which is too much for a 30-year linebacker who was coming out at times in subpackages for the first time in his career last year. The Steelers have a long history of letting players test the market if their demands are more than they think the player is worth. 2016 seventh-round pick Tyler Matakevich is a deep sleeper in dynasty IDP leagues on the possibility that Timmons walks in 2017.

  Steelers | PIT plans to jam up Rob Gronkowski    Tue Sep 8, 01:20 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers plan to be physical with New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski in Week 1 with New England's receiving corps thin minus WR Julian Edelman. Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons has had success in man-to-man coverage in his career, and LB Ryan Shazier has good range in zone coverage. The Steelers are likely to mix and match with both linebackers covering Gronkowski. 'You just have to jam him up a little bit, mess with his timing,' Shazier said. 'If you mess up their timing, they are really time-oriented. You have to mess up their timing and get in his face with pressure, then I feel we can slow him down a little bit.'

Footballguys view: It's been tried before and failed more than it succeeded. Gronkowski is a rock-solid TE1, and potentially the the most prolific tight end this week.

  Steelers | Lawrence Timmons is mainstay    Sun Feb 17, 08:53 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves in a strange position, as linebacker might be their top priority heading into the NFL Draft.

He also tied for the team lead with six sacks, led with three interceptions, had 19 quarterback pressures, and forced two fumbles. He is 26 and under contract for the next four years. Impending free-agent LB Larry Foote (Steelers) might also be back on a one-year deal, but they still might look in the draft early for help.
