Redskins have league's oldest roster

Over on the NFC West blog, Mike Sando takes a look at the average age of each NFL team's roster.

Excluding "kickers, punters or snappers because older players at those positions could distort averages in a misleading way," Sando finds the Washington Redskins have the league's oldest roster by a considerable margin. The average age of the team is 27.33, well above the next highest team, the Steelers at 26.78 and the league average of 26.04.

The next oldest NFC East team doesn't show up until the Dallas Cowboys at No. 16 with an average age of 26.0. Next is the Giants at No. 22 with an average of 25.71, making the Eagles the youngest team in the division at 25.20, ranking 29th in the league.
