Tomlin says he and Lawrence Timmons will remain close

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons in free agency, but the friendship Timmons and his now-former head coach Mike Tomlin transcends the sport.

“These are unique relationships,… We had a lot of fun over the last decade,” Tomlin said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Joe Rutter.

“Just because we no longer do formal football business doesn’t mean he and I won’t have a relationship, or he won’t have a relationship with the members of this football team or organization.”

Timmons signed a two-year, $12 million deal with Miami on March 10th.
