Marcus Gilbert to stay at Right Tackle and Mike Adams gets first shot at Left Tackle

Ed Bouchette is reporting that Marcus Gilbert will remain on the right side where he belongs.  That means rookie OT Mike Adams will be placed on the left side.  The Steelers told Willie Colon he was moving to left guard with full intentions of making Adams the Left Tackle.
This makes the most sense.  Gilbert is a better right tackle then he is a left.  Adams is built to play left tackle.  This team will be better for this.  They have all preseason and training camp to get ready to play together.  This group may spend more time on the field then usual in the preseason just to get some chemistry.
So your Steelers starting offensive line going into training camp is:

LT- Mike Adams
LG- Willie Colon
C- Maurkice Pouncey
RG- David DeCastro
RT- Marcus Gilbert
