Linebacker Lawrence Timmons has spent his entire NFL career with the Steelers, but he’s reached the end of his contract and reportedly talking to the Dolphins about making a move.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports that Timmons is set to visit the Dolphins after free agency opens on Thursday afternoon. Fowler adds that Timmons’ agents have been speaking to the Steelers as well, but that nothing at this point suggests he won’t hit the open market.

Love 94 but he has lost a step and Vince will fill in that spot just fine and a lot cheaper.

Wonder if the Steelers have their eyes on MLB in the draft? I thought another year or two from Timmons would benefit the defense, he's still effective and he offers good veteran leadership. If we can find a younger replacement though, or if they think Vince Williams can take over the role, then saving the money is probably the best move.

I think you are correct. They are set to move forward with Williams and likely look in the draft if somebody of value is there. Otherwise, Matakevich, Fort and another veteran brought in for backups.

Timmons was good here, and he was slightly undervalued. The Bell tag and Brown contracts were going to bring casualties. Timmons, and probably more yet, are them.

If he goes, and I hope he doesn't, I'll wish him the best because he was a true Steeler LB.

I dont know what planet some of you have been on but Vince Williams hasnt shown he can do what Timmons has been doing. Steelers have cap space for the first time since Moses wore short pants and the cap went up, yet this off season looks the damn same.

And you want to spend that cap space on a 10 year Veteran ILB instead of young guys like Brown, Bell, Tuitt, Shazier? Still need a LT under contract and upgrade pass rush, WR, TE(if Green isn't back).

Shazier is the Steelers best ILB, Timmons has been great, but considering the amount of sub packages played these days, Williams will be a 2 down ILB and they didn't need to invest that kind of money on a 2 down player on the wrong side of 30. Cap forces some tough decisions and Timmons is one of them. Williams has shown he is a good ILB, so I am not concerned at all.

Let him go a year too early rather than a year too late. He will be missed but it's time to go to another direction.

I prefer Zach Brown who is better in coverage if the Steelers want to address the ILB position through FA market.

One thing is sure, ILB is now or biggest need in the draft/FA together with an edge rusher and CB. And we also need a TE and a decent back-up RB. I hope they can address one of these positions in FA or we will need to hit all our picks in the upcoming draft.

This year draft is a perfect match to the Steelers needs. It's widely considered one of the best draft classes in recent years and the talent pool is especially rich in DB, OLB and TE.

You're right. But ILB could be a problem. At 30 there's a small chance for Reddick or Cunningham or they could go for Jarrad Davis. In round 2 there's McMillan, but he has pass coverage problems.
