Washington Redskins 2011: Are Fans in for a Youth Movement?

At the beginning of the 2010 season the Redskins boasted the NFL's oldest roster, at an average of 27.33 years old. This year's super bowl champion Green Bay Packers were in the bottom half of the league in age, being the 19th oldest roster at 25.88 years.

Teams such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2nd youngest) and the Philadelphia Eagles (4th youngest) both finished with 10 wins this season and are expected to compete for their division titles and possibly an NFL crown next year.

The Redskins have made a number of off-season moves that show that the Redskins may finally be embracing the youth movement that has been sweeping the NFL for the past several seasons, but obviously it is a bit too soon (lockout, cough, cough) for us to know just what direction Shanahan will take the team this year in terms of age.
