Tennessee Titans, not as young as you think


The Tennessee Titans just added a lot of starters over the last two years, but where do they rank among other teams in the league in average age? Well, Football Perspective did a piece on exactly that, and this is some info about the Tennessee Titans.

(Note: There is a complicated metric involved, but I believe that the values they use are based on projected starters and heavy rotational players. Again, you can read the original piece to find out more.)

The offense surprisingly ended up as dead center in the middle of the pack. The Tennessee Titans have the 16th youngest team in the league with an average age of 27.

Young players like Marcus Mariota, Chance Warmack, Taylor Lewan, and Kendall Wright bring the number down.

  • On the other side of the coin, players like Delanie Walker, Andy Levitre and Byron Bell all  bring the average age up.

    What I don’t know is how the addition of Dorial Green-Beckham and Jeremiah Poutasi could lower the number. In fact, based on when this post was published (May 6th) I would assume that Shonn Greene is still adding some years to the average.

    All in all, it is a strange thing because the Titans have some veteran players and some rookies, but not a lot of guys right in the middle of their career i.e. second contract players.


    Again, the Tennessee Titans find themselves right in the middle of the pack. Here, they are 20th youngest in defensive age at 27.1.

    Now, unlike the other side of the ball where it is largely desperate age groups the Tennessee Titans are very balanced in that range. Jurrell Casey (25), Derrick Morgan, (26), Jason McCourty (27), and Brian Orakpo (28) are all right around the same age and are in the prime of their careers.

    It would be interesting to see the number if Ropati Pitoitua was replaced by DaQuan Jones, and if Wesley Woodyard is replaced by Zach Brown. Outside of that, I can’t really see the Titans average age budging much.


    Overall the Tennessee Titans were 17th in the league in terms of age, and I would be surprised if that number doesn’t drop a few spots by the end of the year. This team has some talented young players that are poised to push for jobs both immediately and long-term.
