Dolphins released LB Lawrence Timmons.
With the cap-strapped Dolphins apparently "changing their culture," releasing Timmons and saving $5.4 million against the cap was a no-brainer. Timmons went AWOL at the beginning of last season and was completely ineffective upon his return. The ex-Steeler turns 32 this spring. Mar 12 - 1:45 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are expected to release LB Lawrence Timmons by the start of the new league year.

The no-brainer move will create $5.4 million in cap space. Timmons went AWOL from the Dolphins in Week 2 but still ended up starting 14 games. He was a liability, generating zero sacks, forcing zero turnovers and getting walloped by the run. The ex-Steeler turns 32 in May. He will struggle for guaranteed money on the open market.
Feb 22 - 3:16 PM

Dolphins LB Lawrence Timmons is listed as a starter for Week 4 against the Saints.

Timmons skipped the first game and was suspended the second, so this will be his Dolphins debut. With Rey Maualuga (hamstring) still sidelined and not much talent at the position, Miami could certainly use the help.

The Dolphins have reinstated suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Timmons will be active this week against the Saints. Timmons skipped the Dolphins' first game and was suspended for the second. With Mike Hull predictably struggling mightily in Timmons' place, the Dolphins should gladly welcome Timmons back, though it's not clear where his head is at.
Tue, Sep 26, 2017 03:40:00 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons is "taking the steps to make it back."

The Dolphins haven't provided much on Timmons since he went AWOL before Week 2. He can be suspended for up to four games under the CBA, but there's a good chance he'll return before that. Despite rumblings the Dolphins could move on from Timmons, his contract and Miami's lack of linebackers strongly suggests he'll be back with the team.

When asked about suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said, "I would say that you can be forgiven if the right steps are taken."

He was suspended indefinitely after going AWOL over the weekend. There have been rumblings of Miami potentially parting ways with Timmons, though Roy Cummings of Florida Football Insiders believes Gase has now established a "path" for his reinstatement. To make up for the loss of Timmons, the Dolphins acquired Stephone Anthony from the Saints earlier this week.

Dolphins suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons indefinitely for violating team rules.

Dealing with a personal situation, Timmons went AWOL from the team on Saturday night. He was reportedly back with the club on Monday, but the Dolphins have decided the transgression must be punished. "Indefinite" team suspensions have a way of lasting only a game or two, but Timmons' situation is extremely murky. Anything from one week to the Dolphins moving on completely is on the table. Under the CBA, four weeks is the max length of Timmons' suspension. The ban should void the $4.5 million guaranteed in Timmons' deal.
Tue, Sep 19, 2017 04:07:00 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase is unsure if SLB Lawrence Timmons will remain with the team going forward.

Timmons is dealing with a personal situation. He was back with the team on Monday. Expect clarity to emerge some time in the next 48 hours.
Mon, Sep 18, 2017 03:13:00 PM

TMZ Sports reports the Dolphins filed a missing persons report for SLB Lawrence Timmons on Saturday.

Timmons was reportedly not in his room at curfew, and the team could not find him despite calling family and close friends. Timmons was eventually found at the airport early Sunday morning in the boarding area for a flight headed to Pennsylvania, which is where his child lives. Timmons returned to the team on Monday, but his future with the team remains muddled.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Dolphins SLB Lawrence Timmons is "doing much better" and "wants to resume playing immediately."

Timmons left the team before their season opener against the Chargers after "something angered him," according to reports. Timmons may want to return, but the Dolphins will have to decide whether they want him back on the team. Considering what they have a linebacker, the answer is likely yes.
Mon, Sep 18, 2017 09:58:00 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Dolphins SLB Lawrence Timmons has left the team ahead of Week 2 against the Chargers.

According to La Canfora, Timmons' "whereabouts are known," but the team is "weighing the situation" ahead of this afternoon's kickoff. The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Timmons wasn't arrested, but he won't play after "something angered him." Miami is already forced to start UDFA Mike Hull at middle linebacker with Rey Maualuga out of shape and not ready.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 11:44:00 AM

Dolphins signed LB Lawrence Timmons, formerly of the Steelers, to a two-year, $12 million contract.

Timmons gets $11 million guaranteed. The Dolphins made it known after the season they wanted to overhaul their linebacker group, but we're not sure Timmons is an impact player at this stage of his career. He has a lot of miles on the tires and turns 31 in May. It's unclear how the Dolphins will employ Timmons, but he could play MIKE, which would kick Kiko Alonso to the weak side.
Fri, Mar 10, 2017 02:55:00 PM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports free agent ILB Lawrence Timmons will visit the Dolphins on Thursday.

The Dolphins are intent on upgrading their linebacker corps, but Timmons wouldn't necessarily be an impact addition despite his many productive seasons in Pittsburgh. Going on 31, Timmons has looked a step slower in recent years, and is best utilized as a rotational player at this point in his career. Signing Timmons could be part of a plan to kick MLB Kiko Alonso outside.
Wed, Mar 8, 2017 05:41:00 PM

Speaking Thursday, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert hedged on re-signing free agent ILB Lawrence Timmons.

"Would you like to have him stay? Absolutely," Colbert said. "(But) does it all fit? We can make it work, but at what cost?" You could say Colbert is lukewarm on retaining the 30-year-old, longtime Steeler. Timmons started all 16 games last season, but was somewhat of a liability as an every-down player. If he returns, it will be to reduced money and perhaps a reduced role.
Thu, Feb 16, 2017 03:31:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Steelers began their dialogue with free agent ILB Lawrence Timmons on Monday.

La Canfora says the Steelers have also begun discussing a long-term deal with contract-year WR Antonio Brown. Timmons is a career Steeler the organization seems lukewarm on retaining, but Pittsburgh would probably be willing to re-sign him if Timmons accepts a hometown discount. Timmons turns 31 in May.
