  • Below are the 10 oldest NFL players for 2022.
  • Tom Brady is the oldest player in the league (45 years).

At age 45, it’s well-known Tom Brady is the oldest NFL player for the 2022 season, and his Buccaneers have the oldest average roster by age in the league.

Tampa Bay entered the season with some of the best NFL odds to win the Super Bowl, with experience certainly playing a role. It was a frustrating season for Tampa Bay, which ultimately ended with a loss on Wild Card Weekend at home to the Cowboys.

With Brady announcing his retirement in February 2023, there will be a new oldest player next season.

When it comes to some of the other oldest players in the league, some of the names may come as a surprise, or just be unknowns.

Of the top 10 oldest players in the league, four are quarterbacks, and four are punters or kickers.

*Note, all ages are as of Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season.
