The Green Bay Packers have the oldest and most experienced Opening Day roster since Mike McCarthy became the head coach eleven years ago. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says nine of the 53 Packers are 30 or older, with an average of four and a quarter years of experience. The only other time the average Packer had four years behind him was in 2010, the year of McCarthy’s and G-M Ted Thompson’s only Super Bowl. Unlike the past, the Packers did not limit newcomers to rookies and practice squad players, as they brought in more free agent veterans like Martellus Bennett, Ahmad Brooks, Jahri Evans, and Ricky Jean Francois who are all at least 30. The Packers do have eleven players with no N-F-L experience going into their Sunday home contest against Seattle — and with so many young starters, Green Bay still has a relatively young average player age of 25 point eight.
