Many do go on to longer careers but they are talking averages here. Who had a 21 year career BTW?
Morten Anderson?
I believe kickers and punters manage to stick around the longest.

BTW, I will be 51!!!!
Yea, I don't consider fringe players as part of my equation. The questions Yoda posed asked about our franchise players, barely guys on the fringe.
