    Can he? Probably.. after a long transition time (i.e. Timmons)

    Will he? No.

    ILB in a 3-4 is a completely different animal.

    He isn't nearly thick enough, as his body was last season, to play inside. You got to have some junk in the trunk, a little bit of a banger, like Timmons developed into. JJ just isn't thick enough.

    If Woodley, Worilds and Jones all return (unlikely), I don't think that JJ gets moved inside. However, I can see Lebeau using a package that gets all three on the field in passing situations. He just started using a package like that last year when Woodley got hurt.

    He definitely can, I just hope he catches on as an OLB

    Most likely, yes, unless he agrees to a pay cut.

    Timmons' transition was not as long as many want to characterize.
    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!

    Perhaps he should ask James Harrison about how not to make a stupid career decision! Or perhaps his ego will get in the way too.

    The problem is he is also not "thick enough" to beat NFL Left tackles
