None. There are no 50 or 60 year olds either. And a very limited number of 40 year olds.

Arena players are not any faster or slower than NFL players. Arena football is just another route for people who don't make it to the NFL right away. There are MORE skill players than in the NFL, but they are not individually faster.

You could be a running back or a defensive back, usually the shorter players play those positions in football.

It is rare, except for kickers and punters, to see a player who is 40+ years of age. Most players that have a long career retire sometime in their thirties. In other words, Kickers and Punters - Around 40+ Everyone else - Mid-late 30s

There are a few players who are 40,

According to, there are a total of 628 NCAA football teams. That includes teams from all four divisions (FBS [I-A], FCS [I-AA], II, and III). One division I-A football team, which I checked, has over 100 players on its roster. If we use 60 as the number of players on each football team, then there are 37,680 players playing NCAA football (obviously this number may be higher). There are 32 NFL teams with 53 players on each roster for a total of 1,696 football players in the NFL. That means that each year over 9,500 new potential players are entering the NFL job market (one quarter of 37,680). In addition to those players vying for jobs in the NFL there are still the current NFL players and other walk-on players. In reality only about 250 NCAA players are drafted into the NFL each year. 250/9500=2.6% or about 1:40 odds of a college player making it to the NFL.

Some noteworthy players who wore number 40 for the San Francisco 49ers were All-Pro cornerback/kick returner Abe Woodson (1958-64), Pro Bowl fullback Ken Willard (1965-73), running back Wilbur Jackson (1974-79), fullback William Floyd (1994-97) and Pro Bowl fullback Fred Beasley (1998-2005).

There have been 5 players on the Steelers to wear the number 6: Shaun Suisham (10-present), Bubby Brister (86-92), Jim Elliott (67), Chester Johnson (40), Cosgrove (35).
