A few notes on the 32 reps, as identified by the NFL Players Association:
Offensive linemen stress solidarity and teamwork in their on-field jobs. These ethics might make them suited for union duty. Twelve of the 32 reps are offensive linemen. That is 37.5 percent representation, about double the percentage of offensive linemen on the typical 53-man roster.
Kasay is the oldest rep. He is 41. Oakland's Zach Miller is the youngest. He is 25. Average age: 31.6 years old. Teammates elect reps. Veterans command more respect. Their experience suits them for the role.
Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers is the only quarterback on the rep list.
The chart breaks down union reps by position across divisions, counting Coleman.
