Jets Have 4th Oldest Offensive Line in the NFL

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Former SB Nation writer Jimmy Kemski compiled the average ages of NFL offensive lines. The Jets have the fourth oldest line with an average age of 28 years old.

This says more about the future than the present. The Jets are going to have to get younger up front in the years to come. Some of the replacements will need to be in house.

Mike Maccagnan has talked about one of the hallmarks of a successful organization being the ability to develop quality linemen out of middle round Draft picks. The Jets have a number of young players in the organization in Jarvis Harrison, Oday Aboushi, Dakota Dozier, and Brian Winters. These players are all probably not going to develop into quality starters, but one or two could make a big difference in the future of the team.
