The Steelers reached terms with 1st rounder Lawrence Timmons, giving him a chance to make $15 million over 5 years. The base pay is a little over $12 mil, but incentives push it to $15 big ones.
Mega-agent (and part-time slimeball) Drew Rosenhaus said that:
“We think it was very important to get Lawrence signed on time to give him an opportunity to reach his immense potential. Obviously, Mike Tomlin’s in his first training camp and Lawrence is his first draft pick as head coach and we wanted him to be there. He’s off to a great start.”
Now all he needs to do is start practicing.
