However, when you calculate the average age of the players on the Baltimore Ravens roster in the 2012 NFL season, they have the 5th oldest average age of the 32 teams in the league. Their average age is 26.68 years, behind the 4th oldest Minnesota Vikings (26.76), 3rd oldest Cleveland Browns (27.78), 2nd oldest Pittsburgh Steelers (26.78) and the oldest team in the NFL, the Washington Redskins (27.33).
It's ironic to see a team like the Redskins at the top of the age ranking, considering they have one of the youngest and most promising quarterbacks in the league in Robert Griffin III. The youngest team in the NFL are the Carolina Panthers (25.0 years), just ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (25.10) and Indianapolis Colts (25.14).
