    About 3 years ago it was tennessee, it's rare to see a team remain toward the bottom for youth.
    Green Bay don't sign free agents though, that will skew the stat if you basically only add players through the draft, basically replace anyone who goes out with a younger guy.

    Stat really needs to be broken down by positions and starters to really show anything though. For instance the Vikes are fairly old on the list, but our offense is really very young outside of Favre. Our defense is a fair bit older though and our older guys are key guys.


    Props to BK on the sig!

      John Carney is 45 too. So yeah, Brunell and Carney bring down the average age on our team. Our starters and contributers are all young.

          The difference is less that 2 years between #1 and #32. The bolded franchises are fairly evenly spread out over the list. The stat is fairly interesting, but ultimately pretty pointless really.

            Damn you Mark Brunell and John Carney.
            The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

              The average career of an NFL player is 3 years, so not really.

                Yep. I think we are a Dirk Johnson away from being the youngest in the league.

                  The Giants would be even younger if we didn't have Jeff Feagles skewing the numbers.

                  But as far as Im concerned, Jeff could put until he's 50. As long as he can do it, I have no problem with him being our punter.

                    I don't think 1 or 2 players is going to make a difference. Two years ago when we had Favre and a LS that was in his 40s we still topped it

                    Thanks to BK for the sig

                      suppose the average age is 26, and you add a 40 year old kicker to your roster while someone is on IR (hypothetical)

                      (26*52 (players) + 40)/53 = 26.25 years old average one or two oldies doesn't spoil your team.

                        The age difference between the typical young and typical older rookie coming out of college is about the same margin of 2 years. So in this case, age doesn't necessarily translate to years pro so easily.

                          I knew we were young but not the 3rd youngest
