Receiver Stills signs $32 million, 4-year deal with Dolphins

Dolphins signed LB Lawrence Timmons, formerly of the Steelers, to a two-year, $12 million contract. A former Pro Bowl player, Timmons had 114 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two interceptions in 2016, helping the Steelers reach the AFC Championship game.

According to Pro Football Focus, Timmons has regressed the past two seasons, recording below-average scores of 34.3 and 48.4.

From the moment he was drafted by the Steelers in 2007 as the 15th overall pick, Timmons seemed set to be a Steeler for life.

The Dolphins need a bruising middle linebacker like Lawrence Timmons.

Timmons has appeared in fewer than 16 games just once during his career, back in 2009 when he made appearances in 14 of 16 games. Simmons has been Pittsburgh's leading tackler in six of the past seven seasons.

Larsen is projected to be the Dolphins starting right guard in 2017 and will be relied upon to help protect quarterback Ryan Tannehill and pave the road for running back Jay Ajayi.

Wide receiver Markus Wheaton is headed to Chicago.

Timmons is the second free agent the Steelers have lost since the signing period began Thursday. Timmons is an important leader both on and off the field, and his presence will be important for the team's emphasis on building the defense in free agency and through the draft this spring.
