The Miami Dolphins released linebacker Lawrence Timmons on Tuesday following an up-and-down season that included an unauthorized absence ahead of the teams Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Timmons, who signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Dolphins last March, went missing one day ahead of the teams clash with the Chargers at StubHub Center. 

Timmons could very well find his way back to the Steel City when all is said and done, but for those out there thinking it is a done deal he will be back in his usual No. 94 next season at Heinz Field might want to pump the brakes a bit.

TMZ Sports noted Miami filed a missing persons report after being unable to locate or contact the linebacker during bed checks. Police found him at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday morning with a plan to visit his baby in Pennsylvania.

Do I want Timmons as a starter? No, but I would like Timmons to possibly play is specific situations, mentor a young draft pick and have a chance to end his career in the black-and-gold…like he should.

A source told Adam Schefter of ESPN the next day Timmons was “doing much better” and wanted to “resume playing immediately.”

MIAMI (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says receiver Danny Amendola is discussing a contract offer from the Miami Dolphins and is likely to sign with them when the NFLs new year begins Wednesday.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Bills‘ defensive front quickly took shape Tuesday, when Star Lotulelei agreed to sign with Buffalo, and Kyle Williams chose to return for a 13th season by saying the he never entertained any thought of retiring.

The person confirmed the talks to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because there was no final agreement.

Former Kansas City Chiefs receiver Albert Wilson is expected to sign a $24 million, three-year deal with Miami. Wilson and Amendola would replace three-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry, whom the Dolphins have agreed to trade to the Cleveland Browns for two draft picks.

Amendola, 32, is a nine-year NFL veteran with 426 career receptions and 19 touchdowns. Last year he caught 61 passes for 659 yards for New England.
