Here's the Saturday debate for "ya'll", as Parks would say. In this series, I ask you guys to play general manager and vote for how many players you would keep at each position. A recap of where we're at so far on the roster breakdown. We've voted to keep: nine offensive lineman, six defensive lineman, six wide receivers, four running backs (including full back Darrel Young), and four safeties. If my math is correct (and that's a big if, I'm fully aware of that), then that adds up to 29 of our 53 man roster completed.

Today we're looking at linebackers. I'm going to lump outside and inside backers in together for this one. Here's the list of guys currently on the roster according to Redskins.com, after the jump.

Lorenzo Alexander

London Fletcher

Donnell Holt

Rob Jackson

Bryan Kehl

Ryan Kerrigan

Monte Lewis

Brian McNally

Brian Orakpo

Perry Riley

Keenan Robinson

Markus White

Chris Wilson

Ideally I would keep eight. Those guys would include the obvious starting four; Fletcher, Kerrigan, Orakpo, Riley. Along with them, I'd like to keep Jaackson and White as the primary back up pass rushers, with Kehl and Robinson as the back up inside linebackers. But the problem with this is that I'd be cutting Alexander, and I just can't envision this Redskins team without him being on it. He's too versatile and important on special teams not to make the cut, so my vote would have to go to nine.

Let me know how many you voted for and your thoughts in the comments below.
