Overall, the Raiders, who finished 8-9, had the 11th oldest team in the league with an average age of 27.3.
The Raiders were much older on offense as they were the fourth oldest offense even though they played most of the season with a rookie quarterback. on defense, they were the 21st oldest.
That’s exciting because the unit played well, especially down the stretch. So, with some tweaks, the Raiders get find some more youth in 2024 as they build for a brighter future.
