Now the NFL’s quarterback potential is more interesting than ever. Joe Burrow, Brock Purdy, Josh Allen, Jalen Hurt, Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurt are age restricted to 26 years or younger.
It’s important to remember that some veteran signal callers are still active and not ready to retire. Skills at the helm have a bright present and a promising future, but for now, let’s look at the top NFL quarterbacks who are 29 or older.
#5, Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos (November 29, 1988)
Russell Wilson, a nine-time Pro Bowl player who has won 65 percent of his starts, is expected to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.The quarterback’s accomplishments, though, all happened during a decade-long tenure. seattle seahawks… As a member of the Denver Broncos this season, he’s seen it all crumble.
However, we don’t believe one season of inconsistent play can undo all of his positive contributions to the league. Wilson has been a top quarterback since joining the NFL in 2012.only wilson and tom brady Lead their teams to 100 or more victories in that span.Since 2012, only Brady has won more playoff games than Wilson, and only Brady and aaron rogers Pass more touchdowns than Wilson.
#4, Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys (July 29, 1993)
His best talent is undoubtedly his pre-snag defensive reading skills. Prescott delivered one of the best performances of his career — a career full of great performances — wildcard Playoff round. While he was inconsistent during the regular season, he was a key component of the offensive scoring.
Since taking over as the Cowboys’ starting signalman in 2016, Prescott has been an icon of efficiency, setting various franchise records.
#3, Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (February 7, 1988)
No one can steal Matthew Stafford’s status super bowl Champion as the starting quarterback. Stafford joins a select group of quarterbacks who arguably won a Super Bowl after being good enough last year.
Plus, his overall stats from the previous year were strong. His final stats included 4,886 yards, a 67.2 percent completion percentage, 41 scores and a league-high 17 interceptions. However, he couldn’t reproduce that level this season due to multiple injuries and club issues, but he’s still one of the best veteran quarterbacks in the entire league.
#2, Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (August 3, 1977)
During his remarkable career, Tom Brady has shattered every theory about how humans age. In the longest and greatest career of any (non-special teams) football player, Brady never really lost his edge.
Brady led the NFL in both throwing yards and scoring last season. The season before that, he won a Super Bowl. This year, despite many ups and downs, he still managed to lead his Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the wild-card round, where the Cowboys beat them.
Brady is still playing at a high level at 45 years old. He recently broke his record for most completions in a single season. However, he has remained mum about his future. Now, whether he wants to continue playing into his 40s is up in the air.
#1, Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers (December 2, 1983)
Aaron Rodgers has an incredible natural passing talent that makes him potentially the best passer the game has ever seen. However, to take advantage of the opportunity, others must be on the receiving end. That’s probably why he hasn’t had much of an impact on the Packers this year.
After winning back-to-back MVP awards for the first time in his career, Rodgers is a paragon of super efficiency. He intuitively identified passes that others might never find, and most importantly, he successfully completed them. Rodgers will succeed in any situation where he is pressured or moved to the field.
Similar to Brady, it’s unknown whether we’ll see Rodgers after this season, but he’s still had a fantastic career.
