Default Timmons not expected to start?

Saw this on steelers.com

"Lawrence Timmons isn't expected to be a starter for the Steelers this year. Beat writer Scott Brown expects Timmons to play a lot of snaps, but mostly in a rotation behind Larry Foote and possibly LaMarr Woodley outside. In terms of IDP value, Foote has the most to worry about if Timmons comes on."
-from Rotoworld/Pittsburgh Tribune

Sounds like some bull, what do you guys think?

I really think Timmons will pay dividends in a year or so once he gets a little more experience ... the guy's an athletic freak and it's only so long before someone with that potential picks up the system and gets comfortable with the defense and will really come onto the scene.

If Timmons doesn't outright win the job in camp (which I almost feel Tomlin is obligated to do hitching so much to the Timmons trailor), then I'm sure after some REAL reps in games that he'll take over, kind of like what should have happened with Woodley way earlier in the year

this is the source

The Steelers have to get much more than they got out of their first-round pick, Lawrence Timmons, last year. My guess is that he won't start this season but that he will get plenty of playing time and that the Steelers will move him around since he has the ability to play both inside and outside linebacker.

an opinion by scott brown, nothing more

There's still camp to go through for this guy to prove himself...

I see a decent amount of PT, starting by at least week 3... based on the time he missed last year, I could see him going into camp not listed as a starter and I think he has to work to win it, but I feel he can do it.

Woodley is gonna break out big time this season so if Timmons can his career kickstarted and become a force and big contributor wether it be as a starter or reserve it will give us a great LB core which is a source of pride for us our LB tradition. Lets hope L.T. can live up to the expectation of being a 1st round pick and lets hope he is the real deal. I dont want to talk about him being a 1st round bust over the next 40 years if I live that long.

I still wanted Poz with that pick instead... I hope he becomes the next Lambert and I eat my words. But I liked the pick after it was said and done and I think he'll be good. I just think that missing time last year sets him back (at least in some minds... not physically) a bit.

Hey would happy if Timmons just rotates at ILB and OLB providing rest for all the LBs at times....Of course I would want Timmons to start at ILB but I would be happy with him just playing a ton of snaps...

I can understand the article... saying that Larry Foote will be able to start one more year. It does give Timmons the opportunity to float.

However, I doubt very much that will happen. It think camp will be the decision maker on this one.
