INDIANAPOLIS — A potential lockout figures to disrupt the player-personnel dealings of some teams more than others.

One team that isn’t expected to be impacted all that much is the Steelers.


“We’re not big players (in free agency),” Kevin Colbert, the Steelers’ director of football operations, said Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine. “So it’s really business as usual for us.”

Instead, the Steelers heavily rely on the draft to keep themselves in Super Bowl contention. That’s good for them because in the event of a lockout, there wouldn’t be any free-agent signings or trades or any other player-personnel business, leaving the draft as the only means of acquiring new talent until a collective bargaining agreement is reached and free agency and trading can resume.
