    also, if a teams looking to get younger (and typically cheaper too) they might cut loose a veteran at a position where they have a lot of promising youngsters in order to give them all a chance
    Except there's not a big reason to do that on June 1st anymore.

    June 1st is the point where a cut player's cap hit gets spread over this year and next. Teams generally have a fair amount of cap room, so why not just take the hit this year and save next year's cap for next year?

It is likely that he won't start but he'll have a good chance of making the team as a backup.

        Who is Stephen Alexander? Exactly.

        Some of us should just cheer for our team and leave the rest to management.
        Charger fans know exactly who Stephanie Alexander is.

              We're so thin at Tackle it's pretty foolish to even mention Jennings. Lelie, Norris and Ulbrich aren't taking up much cap space, if the Niners wanted to cut those three they would've done it by now.

                NO way does KGB get the axe..... he's still a talented DE pass rusher and we have plenty of cap $$$ to pay him as such.

                  This is the second time I've seen you post this. It's not true. The Packers are not the youngest team in the NFL.

                    Actually, I think they are. If not the youngest, top 3 then.

                      I never got the youngest in the NFL thing. I wonder what the difference is in days between the youngest team and like the 15th youngest team. If its like a few months worth of days or if its several years. Every team has a ton of young players.

                      The real issue is will those young guys reach their potential(Rodgers,Harrell etc), some will like Jennings for example and most importantly can you keep them under contract. Some of the young guys might be gone via free agency/cut/injured. So many things can happen. Plus what happens when the few old guys finally stop producing(Woodson,Harris,Driver,now Favre gone).

                        Well, he was cut today, so I guess the Raiders coaches weren't thinking too highly of him. I always thought Stu got a rough deal because so many runners were let into his area the past few seasons, and he isn't really a run support player. But he didn't seem to be able to progress or adjust well, he just got frustrated and benched.

                        Since Branch was drafted, if not before that, he became nothing more than a special teams gunner.

                          Probably among the top three, although things could shake out differently, but KC is the youngest team in the NFL. I'd venture to say that, come September, they'll have the youngest starting offense, youngest starting defense and youngest 53-man roster.

                          Not necessarily true, and the variance is significant. Not quite so much when a 53-man roster is filled out by a few kids, but especially when considering starting lineups there's a big difference between most teams.

                            The Packers were the NFL's youngest team this season, and several of their key players are locked into long-term deals. Thompson just got a contract extension, and McCarthy is expected to sign his new deal this week.
                            Article was written before Brett retired (April 11, 2008). Can't really say anyone is the youngest team for the 08 season because everyone has to go through cuts still.


                            Edit: This is the best I could find for average age, just the top 5

                            PACKERS ONCE AGAIN LEAGUE'S YOUNGEST TEAM
                            -Green Bay has the distinction of being the NFL's youngest team for the second straight season.

                            -Since taking over general manager duties in 2005, Ted Thompson has vowed to build the team's foundation through the draft. Of the 53 active roster players, 18 have been drafted by Thompson.

                            -Each team's average age is based upon its opening-day roster. A look at the five youngest teams in 2007:

                            Team: Average Age
                            Green Bay: 26 years, 89 days
                            Indianapolis: 26 years, 91 days
                            N.Y. Giants: 26 years, 190 days
                            Dallas: 26 years, 197 days
                            Carolina: 26 years, 252 days

                              Actually, Geo is right and you are wrong. Packers are #1, KC #3. And if you plan on playing Boone, Edwards and Surtain, you can forget about having the youngest starting defense.

                              I've made an Excel document with all the ages of the NFL teams.

                              This is using the current rosters as reported by ESPN.com. Of course we can't do a true roster analysis until just before the start of the season since every team has a ton of players who won't make the opening day rosters.

                              Oldie but a goodie.

                                I'm not talking about last year. That's in the books. I'm talking about right now.
