WR Starters - average 30
RB's (2 deep, including FB) - average 27.2
QB's (2 deep) - average - 29
Tightends (2 deep) - average 32.5


DL starters - average 27
LB starters - average 29
DB starters - average 27.5

We're old on the OL, no doubt.

But we're GETTING younger in many areas -- QB (Brodie), WR (Bowe), DL (Tamba, Tank, Turk, plus Allen isn't old), S (Page and Pollard). Patterson and Brackenridge may be getting us younger at CB.

You can't get totally young overnight. The OL needs an overhaul, and that should start next year -- but may take at least 2 years to do. Law and Surtain will be phased out in another year or so.

The only place where we intentionally got older was LB.

So yeah, overall, I think we're getting younger. But it's an ongoing process.
