The Kansas City Chiefs Have No Players Over 30

Most teams in the world of professional sports are always looking to get younger. Age and attrition are one contributing factor, but teams are also always looking for better and younger talent. The NFL is no exception and the Kansas City Chiefs have taken getting younger to a whole new level.

More after the jump...

According to a report by the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs will go into training camp without a player over 30-years-old and they're the only team in the NFL with that distinction:

They have six players who are 30: quarterback Matt Cassel, offensive lineman Ryan Lilja, wide receiver Terrance Copper, defensive lineman Amon Gordon, safety Abram Elam and punter Dustin Colquitt. Other than Cassel, none of those players could be considered essential to the success of the Chiefs this year, so they will be counting on their many younger players to carry them.
