Following the cutdown to a (somewhat) finalized 53-man roster, it is an annual tradition that somebody out there less lazy than myself calculate the average age of NFL teams and create a whole bunch of headlines from all 32 markets that allude to where each franchise sits in the stack.
This year, Philly Voice did the dirty work, and Vikings fans will be interested to hear that the team has gone from one the league’s youngest rosters to the second oldest. They have an average age of 26.58 years and only the Atlanta Falcons are older.
One school of thought would suggest that an already talented playoff team is now that much more experienced across the board and prepared to make a serious run. Another angle, however, is that this roster has some veterans that will soon be in need of a replacement.
