I'm curious what the Dolphins will do after 4 weeks (the maximum they can suspend him due to CBA). Trade him? Nobody wants a 30+ player with problems and an 11M guarenteed contract. Cut him? It would be strange since they already could have done that now. Unless they don't want him to play for another team the following weeks. Keep him? Would be strange too, because there will be a lot of bad blood between him and the coach.

I read that he saw a Dr. Maybe to be checked for CTE. This doesn't seem like the Timmons that played for us. I'd like to know the real story.

Me too. Whatever it is, it's uncharacteristic for him. Let's hope it's not CTE related, that would be devastating.

It just seems completely out of character for him. I too hope it's not CTE related. Lawrence always seemed like a great guy and worked hard while he was here.

Yeah true. It does seem really out of character for Timmons, he's always been the consummate professional

REPORT: Former Steeler Lawrence Timmons returned to Pittsburgh, wants to come back

According to NFL reporter Jason LaCanfora, former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons might be getting a little homesick. According to La Canfora, Timmons actually returned to Pittsburgh prior to the events of week two and expressed an interest in coming back to the Steelers.

I don't see a place for him, nor do I know exactly what the salary implications are.

That ship has sailed.

he's still a better option than Williams I like him in the run defense but I'll need to come out on passing plays. he'll need to take a massive pay cut from what the Steelers were paying him.

imo he still has a couple of years left not as a 3 down LB.

You gotta wonder about him doing this in such a public way. The Miami bridge is burning if not burnt. How would they want him back after he doesn't show up, gets suspended, then visits his old team and says he'd rather be there? I wonder if the Steelers would consider bringing him back if he is released.

If he'll take a pay cut, sure why not!

man I loved seeing Lawrence in the black and gold.....always had a high opinion of him.....

but I'm kind of torn with this...he essentially did what blount did if I'm reading some of these stories right.

This wasn't the outcome I would have guessed a few days ago:

Miami Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons was reinstated Tuesday from his indefinite suspension, the team announced.

He will play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.....

That reinstatement was quick. Man what a weird set of events that was. Hopefully all is well with him. Nothing but love for Law Dog.

sign him with in the Steelers structure going forward. Timmmons 30 year old which was over paid the last 6 years time to give a little back for the team.

I don't think Law Dog is coming back to Pittsburgh. It would make little sense unless he wants to take a major paycut and be a backup. I think the team likes what they've got with Williams and Dirty Red (Matekavich), and I think they'll probably look for more ILB depth in next year's draft because it'd be cheaper to bring in fresher young talent than keeping around a veteran that honestly looked to me last season like he's lost a step. Timmon's main strength was always his speed, and I think definitely over the past couple of seasons his speed isn't what it used to be, and he makes more plays based on his knowledge of the game than off of his athletic talent.

Nothing but respect for Timmons, but I don't see him coming back. But hey, I could be wrong! Harrison came back after a year with the Bungles.
