    Lawrence Timmons Signs Contract Extension

    LB Lawrence Timmons signed a 6-year deal for $50 million with the Steelers today.

    From the PG

    Timmons signed a six-year, $50 million contract that takes him through the 2016 season and includes $18 million in bonuses. Combined with the six-year, $61.5 million contract signed by fellow linebacker LaMarr Woodley and the four-year, $28 million contract cornerback Ike Taylor signed, they have invested heavily in their defense.

    The Steelers and inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons have agreed to a new six-year, $50 million contract.

    Timmons, the Steelers' first-round pick in 2007, had been going into the final year of his original deal.

    A full-time starter since 2009, Timmons registered a team-leading 135 tackles in 2010. He also had three sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. For his career, he has 291 tackles, 15 sacks, three interceptions, seven forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.

    Timmons, 25, was the second linebacker selected in the 2007 NFL Draft, following San Francisco 49ers star Patrick Willis, who was taken with the 11th-overall pick.
    Earlier this summer, the Steelers signed outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley to a six-year, $61.5 million contract, cornerback Ike Taylor to a four-year, $28 million contract, and right tackle Willie Colon to a five-year, $29 million deal.

    @AdamSchefter: With Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley doing new deals this summer, Steelers have given $111.5 million of contracts to their two LBs.

    I am so happy. With Wallace not being a UFA next year but a restricted free agent, as he doesnt have 4 years of service, Troy will probably be the only other contract extension they will even consider this year.

    Outstanding!! This one came in under the radar, nobody knew they were even seriously working on it. The Steelers linebackers are in good hands for a long time now. Congrats to Timmons and the Steelers for getting it done!

    Everyone was wondering how they would handle having to sign both Timmons and Polamalu next year, plus try and ink Wallace to a new deal even if he is only an RFA then. Who would get the franchise tag, who would be the more difficult to sign, etc.

    This is a big step towards securing their future. Timmons burst onto the scene the last couple years and his production only figures to go up.
