Following the 53-man cutdowns, the Cleveland Browns have become the youngest team in the NFL.

On the other hand, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the oldest roster in the NFL this year, followed by the Arizona Cardinals.

Unsurprisingly, Tom Brady, who is having some family trouble, is the oldest active player in the NFL, turning 45 soon. Brady will not be the only player aged 40 or above this year, but he certainly is the oldest active one in the league.

Jason Peters, Dustin Colquitt and Andy Lee come in next as the current 40-year-olds in the league, replacing Andrew Whitworth and Ben Roethlisberger, who both retired ahead of the 2022 season. Robbie Gould comes next in line as the only current 39-year-old, while Aaron Rodgers, Clark Harris and Mercedes Lewis represent the 38-year-old club.
