linebacker is hoping he doesn't have to test the market this offseason.
Timmons is slated to become an unrestricted free agent, and has spent his entire 10-year career with the Steelers since being drafted in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of Florida State.
It appears that the 30-year-old will try to strike a new deal with the team before free agency commences.
"I'm die hard Pittsburgh. This is where I want to be," Timmons said via NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala.
Timmons was an integral part of the Steelers' defense, recording 114 tackles, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and two interceptions in 16 games this season.
