I thought the Steelers would give him a vet minimum shot. Nobody wants him so far.

It's going to take an injury before Timmons sees a roster. Just like Dez Bryant or Adrian Peterson.

Your right 77. He keeps working out and hoping. I guess the Steelers want to see the young guys first.

The next couple months needs to play out before Timmons will come to terms that he isn't getting more than vet min.

To sign him right now, I'm guessing, he's still going to need more like $2.5M a year.

I don't even think it is a money thing with him, I bet he would be willing to sign for vet minimum, but let us be honest here.

Doesn't anybody think that him going AWOL on the Dolphins last season, that whole batshit crazy thing, has teams not wanting to sign him? I do.

That and he's on the wrong side of 30 could be two pretty good reasons he's not on a roster yet.

I don't think it is his age, the dude just turned 32 and he always kept himself in great shape, never really had any injuries to speak of.

Derrick Johnson signed with the Raiders and he turns 36 this season.

I really think that Timmons only wants to come back and play for the Steelers, playing for some other team is just not an option. I don't think he needs the money, that he is desperate, I mean come on you tally up his contracts and it comes out to over $60 million, yeah, taxes and his agent but still, the dude is fine financially. I think he really missed being a Steeler, and it isn't like we haven't seen this phenomena before, whether it was Willie Williams, Willie Gay, Bryant McFadden, Matt Spaeth, Larry Foote, Orpheus Roye, Randle El, etc. There have been many former players that wanted to come back 'home' for one last ride. Can't fault him for that.

He started playing at 20. Lots of hard miles on that body. Just because Johnson is playing at 36 doesn’t make it the norm.

I don't think he would bolt from the Steelers. He would be a solid backup behind the young studs and for rotating in. He wants another run at the SB with his bro's. Give him a shot.
