LATROBE, Pa. (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers are going shopping.
General manager Kevin Colbert said Monday the team hopes to use some of its remaining room under the salary cap to lock down a potential free agent before the regular season begins.
The Steelers have four starters entering the final year of their deals, including outside linebacker Jason Worilds and cornerback Cortez Allen.
Colbert declined to specify how far under the $130 million cap the Steelers are, but said it is less than $6.5 million. While it's not enough to hammer out a new contract for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Colbert is adamant the team will make sure Roethlisberger - who has two years left on his deal - remains in Pittsburgh for the entirety of his career.
