We are still a young team.
If anything, the defense is getting old. The infusion of youth with Babin and Robinson was timely and sorely needed.
Aside from the two rookies there isn't a starter on the defensive side with less than 5 years experience. We have three defensive starters over 30 and several pushing 30 with anywhere from 6-8 years experience.
The defense is not young. It's primarily a veteran unit with two rookie starters.
