To rotate or not to rotate: That is the question that could impact the future of Steelers backup outside linebackers Arthur Moats and Anthony Chickillo this summer.

If the Steelers deploy a rotation system like they did for large stretches of the past two seasons, that could warrant five outside linebackers being on the 53-man roster Sept. 10 in Cleveland.

If the Steelers commit to Bud Dupree on the left side and James Harrison or first-rounder T.J. Watt on the right, that could open a spot at another position on the roster.

It's a numbers game that neither Moats nor Chickillo, former sixth-round draft picks, is willing to play.

I can see both of them on STs even if we only keep 4 OLBs.

So Jarvis Jones is off the roster and TJ Watt is on the roster, with 39 year old James Harrison not getting any younger. The author of that article is pretty lame if the premise is that the Steelers are going to committ to every down play of either a 39 year old or a kid that has never taken a snap yet and should still be in college.

They do keep 5 OLB's on the 53...its pretty simple.
