Greg Lloyd was named to five Pro Bowls and 3 NFL All-Pro teams during his career.

He was injured his first year but became a starter during the 1989 season at linebacker where he excelled. He became the leader of the Steelers defense after the retirement of inside linebacker David Little. Lloyd teamed with cornerback Rod Woodson to give the Steelers two of the most dynamic and dominating defensive players in the game. Both Lloyd and Woodson were drafted in 1987 by then Steelers coach Chuck Noll.

Lloyd remained the starter through the 1997 season and was named to five Pro Bowls and 3 NFL All-Pro teams during this time. Lloyd left the Steelers in 1998 and played for the Carolina Panthers before retiring. He missed most of the 1996 season due to a knee injury sustained on opening day at Jacksonville. A true leader and student of the game, Lloyd continued to impact the Steelers defense while injured from the sideline by teaching young linebackers Chad Brown and Jason Gildon the finer points of Steelers linebacking tradition.
