DETROIT, MI (WTVB) - NFL teams are continuing to reshape their rosters heading into the start of the regular season and the Lions might want to locate the fountain of youth. An ESPN report ranked all 32 teams in the league by average age and found Detroit to be the oldest team. The age breakdown shows the Lions have the third oldest offense, second oldest defense and sixth-oldest special teams. It’s not so much the starters but the veteran backups that apparently hike the average age of the Detroit players.

The Lions start the season Sunday with an NFC North matchup at home against the Minnesota Vikings.
