Tennessee Titans are full of young stars
The Tennessee Titans are a young football team. I know it doesn’t feel like it at times, especially with so many second contract guys.
I was curious how young this team was, so I went in and looked at all the starters who were 28 or younger.
QB: Marcus Mariota 23
RB: DeMarco Murray 28, Derrick Henry 22
WR: Rishard Matthews 27, Tajae Sharpe 21
LT: Taylor Lewan 25
LG: Quinton Spain 25
C: Ben Jones 27
RG: Josh Kline 27
RT: Jack Conklin 22

That is 20 different starters or heavily rotated players that the Tennessee Titans have on their team that is at or younger than 29. DeMarco Murray is the only starter that is 29.
