Zach Wilson and the Jets are young.

As of roughly 7:35 p.m. on cutdown day, when we finished collecting data from all 32 NFL team website rosters, the New York Jets had the youngest team in the NFL.

Previously, the youngest teams in the NFL were as follows:

2019: Miami Dolphins

2018: Cincinnati Bengals

2017: Cleveland Browns

Every year from 2012-2016: St. Louis / Los Angeles Rams

By the time you read this, this data will already out of date as teams continue to make tweaks to their rosters, although even with continued roster movement, the average ages of each team shouldn’t change much. Here are the results, with a recent historic look at the average ages of each team on 53-man cutdown day:

To note, "old" doesn't mean "bad," and "young" doesn't mean "good." But certainly, you don't want to be old and bad, like some of the teams on the chart above. And obviously, teams that are both young and talented can feel pretty good about their long-term chances of being consistent contenders.

(Also, no, using the median age for each team is not the better way to do this.) 😇

Who were the notable NFL cuts for the 2021 preseason?

AS English 31 August, 2021 - 08:21pm

The league's annual cutdown day forced teams to whittle down their rosters from 80 players to 53 in preparation for the 2021 regular season. There were plenty of other notable team moves on Tuesday in the NFL, headlined by Cam Newton’s release.

Here are some of the notable players who were let go throughout the league:

Newton's release has probably been the most surprising move. Head coach Bill Belichick had previously said that Newton was "definitely moving in the right direction," when asked about his training camp. After a strong preseason, Mac Jones now becomes Belichick's first rookie to start at quarterback since Drew Bledsoe in 1993.

The Jets cut Johnson less than a month after he was signed.

Johnson, who was a fifth-round pick in 2020, had 18 catches as a rookie. He could be an option for the team's practice squad if he goes unclaimed.
