ST. LOUIS (AP) - For the second year in a row, the St. Louis Rams will begin the season with the youngest roster in the NFL.
And that is just fine with coach Jeff Fisher, who believes young players have a greater capacity to improve.
"One would assume that we'll just continue to get better," he said.
The Rams' 53-man roster has an average age of 24.98, lowest among the 32 teams. St. Louis has 29 players on its roster with two years or less of experience, including 12 rookies.
Offensive tackle Jake Long, 28, one of the veterans with six years of experience, says the younger players bring enthusiasm to the team.
