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.

DeMarco Murray is the toast of the NFL, but injury and team issues clouded some observers' view of his talent. Texas RB Malcolm Brown might have the same problem this winter.
