Locking up another one of their core defenders, the Steelers have signed linebacker Lawrence Timmons to a five-year, $50 million contract, according to ESPN.
This marks the second time that Pittsburgh has reached an extension with one of its linebackers after hammering out a six-year, $61.5 million pact with LaMarr Woodley.
Timmons is a key contributor on one of the NFL's premier defenses. The former Florida State standout has made a sound transition to the NFL after a somewhat bumpy rookie season in 2007.
