A long list of players have competed in the National Football League at age 40 or older. The group includes a number of Pro Football Hall of Fame members led by George Blanda who retired just shy of his 49th birthday. Currently Adam Vinatieri of the Indianapolis Colts and Phil Dawson of the San Francisco 49ers are the only active players age 40 or older.
