What stands out is that the AFC East was pretty old. Of the dozen categories listed above, only two rated in the youngest third of the league. The Dolphins' offense tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for the greenest, a good sign for the future.
If this roster can come together and make a playoff run, then we are setup to be a strong force in the AFC East for a long time. I really hope this youth movement pays off!

Re: AFC East average roster ages
This has to of been done before the draft. Our Defense got a lot younger w/ S. Smith and Vontae Davis last year.. And the majority of the draft this year was on D. The oldest person on our D is Jason Ferguson who won't even be playing half the season. Other then that... Will Allen and YB are the only 30+ yr olds on the Defense. Everyone else is fairly young. Torbor is 29.. But, he will probably be cut anyway. I think when it's trimmed down to 53.. Our D will be one of the youngest in the league.
