My guess is that Timmons, if given the option, would come back here and play for not too much and little to no guarantee $. He would help some with the run D and add much needed talent at depth, if that was his role. Would easily be at least our second best available ILB in the room today.

Problem with this logic is the ability to cover - not support the run - determines which LBer plays.....just saw that this year with Harrison.

But his coverage ability will still be better than most in the room now. I'm not saying he's the main answer, but I think he could be a very solid role player, something we barely have now. Again, playing for probably less and 2 mil per, almost vet minimum. They're not going to spend $7-8 mil per for a top-tier FA ILB, imo.

I don't disagree with any of that (though I agree with other posters better options are probably out there). I think it's a 100% certainty they sign him. And I think it's better than 50/50 he's starting Wk 1, unfortunately.

At he least next seasons postseason failure might already have its excuse.

But but but we just didn’t have a LB that could cover....

Which is why I see Timmons as PART of the ILB solution (a cheap one at that). I think we need at least two new parts at the position. Ultimately, he's your #3-4 guy with some decent versatility.

They will most likely sign Timmons and draft a guy.

And unless the drafted guy is an immediate hit Timmons is your starter.

Yeah as really he is winding down his career. As sometimes less is more. And he could cover when needed.

The dude is 31 for goodness sake. He was 20 when drafted. He is about the same age as Sean Lee.

Bring him in and see what he has left. It's not like he is 39 like Harrison. :o
