From there just look at what teams have ridiculous long term contracts and you may be able to guess who would be pro lockout.
i know it isn't perfect, but even if you look at teams that have signed contracts for over 5 years (jacobs is in that group with 3 or 4 players), couple of them signed just this offseason.

this is one reason why i think 5 years is not the number they want, i think they want 7 years (the number for insurance purposes i believe)
