Default Steelers LB Timmons could be hard to keep out of starting lineup

Steelers LB Timmons could be hard to keep out of starting lineup
http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW...wwhi041709.htm
By Mike Wilkening
April 17, 2009

In two NFL seasons, Steelers LB Lawrence Timmons has flashed considerable potential at times, and never more so than in 2008, when he notched 65 tackles and five sacks in a part-time role.

The way we hear it, the feeling is Timmons will be tough to keep out of the starting lineup in 2009, likely at the expense of ILB Larry Foote.

The good news for the Steelers is that Foote remains an effective run defender and would, at the very least, be a capable reserve if pushed out of the lineup. His presence has allowed the Steelers to slowly develop Timmons, who will only be 23 in May, and that approach has paid off nicely.

The 6-1, 234-pound Timmons, who can also play outside linebacker, has very good athleticism and bolsters an already formidable Steelers pass rush.

He's a bust! We should trade him NOW before he's exposed.

I'm worried with all the upcoming FA's, we won't be able to afford Timms too long. He is such a beast, I'm sure he will want his payday and several teams will be happy to offer him it.

Hope I'm wrong

CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

PITTSBURGH -- Outside linebacker Lawrence Timmons, the No. 15 pick in the NFL Draft, agreed Sunday with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a five-year contract that could be worth as much as $15 million and guarantees him $8,053,000 in bonus money.

It still makes me salivate to think of the LB corp of: Silverback, Timmons, Laurinaitis and Wood.
