    What is the position in pro sports where you can expect to hang around for the least amount of time?

    I was thinking NFL running back, but haven't pondered very thoroughly. What are some other short careers?

    It seems like soccer players have a short window too. They might not have short careers per se, but the downside of the career starts earlier than a lot of sports. Guys are getting old by the time they're 30. Maybe the same can be said for tennis players.

    running back has to be #1. makes you wonder why kids want to be rbs so badly these days. not only are they not paid as much as before, they play a lot less years.

    I would put tennis players after NFL RBs.
