The Dolphins released Timmons on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After spending a decade in Pittsburgh to begin his career, Timmons found new home in Miami last offseason. The marriage got off to a rocky start when he went AWOL in Week 2, which spurred a one-game suspension. Upon his return Week 4, he proceeded to rank among the Dolphins' leading tacklers, finishing the campaign with 84, his fewest since 2009. A reunion with the Steelers is possible, but his old spot on the strong side is currently occupied by dynamic second-year linebacker T.J. Watt. In the end, Timmons' new employer will determine whether he'll continue to churn out tackles during his age-32 season.
Timmons is expected to be cut by Miami in a move to clear up salary cap space, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Timmons had 84 tackles and three passes defensed in 14 games for Miami this season. Those are hardly numbers that justify the Dolphins bringing him back for another season. His release would save $5.5 million versus the salary cap for Miami but there would also be a $2.75 million charge in dead money.
Timmons recorded 13 tackles (eight solo) in Thursday's 40-0 loss to the Ravens.
In a game where the Dolphins defense couldn't stay off the field due to the team's offensive woes, Timmons had plenty of opportunities to be productive and put in his best effort of the season as a result. While this number of tackles is likely unsustainable for the linebacker, he did play in all 65 of the team's defensive snaps and should continue to see plenty of opportunities down the line.
Timmons is slated to make his debut with the Dolphins on Sunday against the Saints, the team's official site reports.
Per the report, Timmons -- who the Dolphins reinstated earlier this week -- is expected to start at linebacker Sunday along with Kiko Alonso and Mike Hull, in the event that the Miami defense opens up the contest in a 4-3 alignment.
Timmons (suspension) practiced fully Wednesday, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.
As expected, Timmons returned to practice after having his indefinite suspension lifted Tuesday. The 31-year-old should slot back in as starting strongside linebacker, but there will likely be more specifics offered on playing time as we enter the back half of the week.
The Dolphins reinstated Timmons from his indefinite suspension Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Timmons will play in Sunday's game against the Saints.
After Timmons went AWOL ahead of the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Chargers to tend to a personal matter, the team suspended the linebacker and didn't provide any indication when he would return. His suspension will last a little over a week, and the expectation is that he'll resume practicing with the team Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game. Chase Allen ended up filling in at outside linebacker in the Week 3 loss to the Jets and recorded seven tackles, but is expected to see his snap count drop dramatically in Week 4 with Timmons back in the fold.
Timmons was suspended indefinitely Tuesday by the Dolphins.
There have been no details surrounding Timmons' situation, as head coach Adam Gase said Monday that he needed to know all the details before commenting. Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the maximum amount of time the Dolphins can suspend Timmons is four weeks, but the team may release a more exact timetable later.
Timmons (personal) is scheduled to meet with doctors Monday, ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reports.
Timmons left the Dolphins to attend to a personal matter Saturday, and while he returned Sunday morning prior to kickoff, the team decided to make him inactive for a 19-17 win over the Chargers. Dolphins coach Adam Gase was hesitant to discuss the situation, saying that he needs to figure out details before providing any comment. Timmons had a streak of 101 consecutive starts before Sunday, and he apparently wants to return for Week 3 against the Jets. He'll first have to consult with doctors to determine whether that's in his best interest.
Timmons (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
For an undisclosed reason, Timmons reportedly wasn't with the team earlier in the day, so he'll be kept to the sideline as a result. Undrafted rookie Chase Allen will draw the start at outside linebacker with Timmons out, while Justin March-Lillard figures to provide depth behind Allen and Kiko Alonso.
Timmons is not expected to play Sunday against the Chargers, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
The report suggests that Timmons is not with the team currently, with his official Week 2 status to be confirmed upon the release of the Dolphins' inactives in advance of Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff.
Timmons signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Dolphins on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.
Over the past 10 seasons with the Steelers, Timmons established himself as a leader on defense, only missing two games in his career. In Miami, he'll play alongside linebackers Kiko Alonso (thumb) and Koa Misi (neck). Last season Timmons recorded 114 tackles (78 solo), five pass deflections, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions and a forced fumble through 16 games.
Timmons will visit the Dolphins, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.
Set to hit unrestricted free agency, the 30-year-old Timmons likely will be Pittsburgh's top offseason priority, but the linebacker may be able to find a better contract elsewhere. With fellow inside linebacker Ryan Shazier proving to be an outstanding player in his own right (when healthy), the Steelers may not want to dole out top dollar to his aging position mate. Of course, there's plenty of room for both players to shine in the team's 3-4 defensive scheme.
Timmons recorded a team-leading 14 tackles (nine solo) in the Steelers' 36-17 loss to the Patriots on Sunday.
After dominating opponents the past nine games, Pittsburgh's defense looked inept against Tom Brady, who led New England to four touchdowns and 411 yards of offense without a turnover. If the Steelers hope to overtake the Patriots next season, re-signing Timmons, who is an unrestricted free agent, will be a priority.
Timmons recorded a team-high 14 tackles (eight solo), including two sacks in Pittsburgh's 30-12 wild-card win against Miami on Sunday.
The Steelers' defense dominated all game, totaling five sacks. Next on the schedule is the Chiefs, against whom Pittsburgh had four sacks in a 43-14 win in Week 4.
Timmons had six tackles (five solo) in Pittsburgh's 27-24 overtime win against Cleveland on Sunday.
Timmons led the Steelers with 114 tackles (78 solo), including 2.5 sacks. This was his fifth straight season leading the team in tackles and his sixth in seven years with 100 or more tackles. He also had two interceptions.
Timmons totaled 10 tackles (eight solo), including a sack, in the Steelers' 31-27 win over the Ravens on Sunday.
Timmons now has 2.5 sacks on the season, with his only other full sack coming against Cleveland, who Pittsburgh faces in Week 17. Browns' quarterbacks were sacked eight times in that game earlier this season.
Timmons collected eight tackles (five solo) and an interception in Pittsburgh's 24-20 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.
Timmons is on pace to lead the Steelers' in tackles for a fourth consecutive season, and the interception was his second in the past three games. He'll look to avenge a 21-14 loss earlier this season when Pittsburgh hosts Baltimore on Christmas Day.
Timmons totaled seven tackles (three solo) and an interception during Sunday's 24-14 win against the Giants.
The timing of Timmons first interception of the season couldn't have been any better, coming inside the five-yard line to preserve an early 5-0 lead. Timmons now has 11 career interceptions.
Timmons recorded a team-leading 10 tackles (eight solo) during Thursday's 28-7 win at Indianapolis.
The Steelers' defense held the Colts to 30 yards of total offense to take a 14-0 first quarter lead, and recorded three sacks and had two impressive goal line stands to maintain their lead on the way to a 28-7 win. Their only lapse came on a 35 yard pass from Pat McAfee to Erik Swoope on a fake punt that seemed to rattle the Pittsburgh defense and led to the Colts only score.
Timmons recorded eight tackles (five solo), including a sack in Pittsburgh's 24-9 win over Cleveland on Sunday.
Timmons is on track to lead the Steelers' defense in tackles for a fourth straight season, although he is on pace for just two sacks, which would match his lowest total other than his rookie season.
