The Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed linebacker Lawrence Timmons. Instead of going on social media like his good friend LaMarr Woodley, Timmons six-year extension was quite.
“They said they wanted to keep it on the [down low] yesterday,” Timmons said. “Once you pay a guy like that, I’m going to do what they say.”
Timmons will receive $50 million through the 2016 season. The 25-year-old is developing into being a star for the Steelers defense.
He’s a former Florida State Seminoles player, who has played alongside James Harrison and James Farrier last season. He led the team with a 134 tackles with three sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
He won’t be able to hide anymore with this big check.
“They paid him a boatload of money,” Farrior said. “He’s definitely going to be asked to do a lot of things he wouldn’t normally be asked.”
With Timmons locked up, the team has its core locked up, as cornerback Ike Taylor and Woodley will be together for a while. The team is hoping to re-sign safety Troy Polamalu next.
“But being around here in this locker room,” Polamalu said. “You can understand why a guy like [wide receiver] Hines [Ward] stays around so long.”
