With the CBA up in the air, there is a possibility that there will be no cap room limit. So that means all of those rich, talent-hungry owners will steal our Steelers.

Even if no agreement is reached, there will still be restricted free agents and unrestricted free agents. Of all of the Steelers free agents, two will be restricted free agents: Willie Colon and Heath Miller. Those two would then almost be guaranteed to stay with the team.

That would happen even if the CBA were in place. The only difference is that the Steelers would have cap room to sign other players. If that happens, they could go on a spending spree with their other free agents.

Jeff Reed should be very cheap, and will probably come back. Ryan Clark is very underrated and is a true Steeler, so he will probably come back. If Max Starks does not agree to a long term deal, then we will probably, once again, franchise him. The rest of the free agents are up in the air, but, with no CBA, it would make it more likely to sign most of them.
