NFL | Fast fact: Young receivers in demand
ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports of the 64 starting NFL wide receivers in the NFL in 2008, only 19 of them were 30 years of age or older. In the past month, there have been 12 wideouts - not all starters - 30 and older released by their former team for a variety of reasons. The average age of the released receivers is 32.9 years. Former Denver Broncos WR Rod Smith (113 passes) was the last receiver older than 30 to lead the league in receptions, which happened in 2001. The top 10 receivers in 2008 averaged 26.1 years of age with an average experience of 4.6 seasons.
