Teams will add a few older backs as the draft and training camps approach, but the NFL is a young man's game, particularly at halfback (as opposed to fullback).

Roughly 90 percent of currently signed NFL halfbacks are not yet 28 years old. I'm counting one, Fred Jackson, older than 30. (He is 31.) Willis McGahee and Michael Turner are 30.
