Jason Lisk at the pro-football-reference.com blog looks at star players at every defensive position and how likely they are to have long careers. In a nutshell, he finds that interior defenders (safeties and inside linebackers) are much more likely to be done by age 30 than perimeter players (cornerbacks and outside linebackers).
That makes Ray Lewis' career even more amazing.
