    Do we now move Timmons to OLB and draft an ILB?

    I'd hate to move Timmons now. The guy seemed to finally "get it" and was a beast on the inside last season. I'm not sure the Steelers have any good alternatives though.

    Let Worilds play, draft an OLB in the middle rounds. Timmons showed nothing when played OLB so why move him?

    Better to keep some stability at LB. Timmons was the only one who performed the last two seasons. However with a training camp under his belt I think he could switch to OLB. Big difference when you have an off season to get ready for a position change versus getting thrown in because the ones there can't stay healthy.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    He was pitiful at OLB. That is the worst idea ever.

    Maybe Timmons would improve as an OLB if he had an off season and training camp to prepare for the position?

    Maybe he'll get even better at ILB too??
    So we move Timmons from a position he's excelling at to a position he's "iffy" at best at???
    Then we have a problem cuz no one is available to play ILB???
    Makes Sense to me!!

    Seriously. Moving Timmons is simply moronic. Instead of having one weakened position (ROLB), let's weaken two in the process? That's just a dumb idea and Tomlin shouldn't even consider that as an option.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are not 100 percent sold about having LB Jason Worilds as a starter because of his inexperience and his inability to stay healthy. The team has their eyes on at least three outside linebacker free agents that they consider young and underutilized. The team likely would only be willing to pay a free agent $3 million or $4 million a season.
