Seahawks aren't quite the youngest team in the NFL, but they're the lightest

It's no secret that Pete Carroll and John Schneider have built one of the league's youngest rosters while turning the Seahawks into Super Bowl champions, but did you know that in Week 1, the Seahawks were the lightest team in the league, checking in with an average weight of 242.26 pounds, more than four pounds below the league average of 246.78? Of course the Seahawks aren't the lightest team because they're trying to be small, rather, it's a function of Carroll and Schneider's desire to be fast. Speed is the biggest reason why the Seahawks can be one of the most physical teams in football while also being the lightest.
