Updated: NFC West roided-out rosters
By Mike Sando
I'll be heading over to CenturyLink Field shortly to catch the Arizona Cardinals-St. Louis Rams game on TV before the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins kick off later Sunday.
In the meantime, I've updated the NFC West rosters featuring 27 columns of information on every current and former (to about 2007) player. You can download those here.
The Rams have the third-oldest 53-man roster in the league heading into Week 12. The Cardinals rank sixth-oldest. The Seahawks have the third-youngest roster behind Tampa Bay and Carolina. San Francisco has the fifth-youngest, right behind Cleveland.
After 2009 first-rounder Jason Smith became the latest Rams draft choice to land on injured reserve, the Rams have only 12 of their own draft choices on their 53-man roster, fewest in the NFL by five players.
The 49ers are tied with Pittsburgh for the league high with 33 of their own draft choices on the 53-man roster, right ahead of Green Bay (32). The Seahawks have 18, tied for third-fewest. The Cardinals have 22, tied for 11th-fewest.
By my count, the Seahawks and Rams are tied with Carolina for the second-most draft choices on injured reserve, with eight apiece. Arizona and San Francisco have three apiece.
