There is a new age of quarterbacks in the NFL.
With players like Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees, and Peyton Manning retired, and Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady on their way out, the quarterback position is evolving to a new group of stars.
Luckily for the NFL and its fans, the future of the position is in great hands, especially considering the age of some of the league’s best.

The average age of the four starting quarterbacks in the Conference Championships this weekend is 25.
This is the youngest such average in league history, and it appears that this is going to be a trend moving forward.
Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes met in the AFC Championship last season, which has the makings of a yearly matchup in this marquee game.
Burrow’s on and off-field swagger is one of his more defining characteristics.
With the roster that the Bengals have constructed on the offensive side of the ball, it’s not hard to see why.
Mahomes, often dubbed as “Magic,” routinely makes plays and passes that seem to constantly end up on highlight reels.
Although Brock Purdy is just a rookie, the fact that he keeps playing mistake-free football is a positive for the San Francisco 49ers heading into this weekend.
Jalen Hurts has taken a giant leap forward this season, proving to his doubters that he is much more than a mobile threat, but a truly elite passer as well.
Tune in this weekend, as each one of these quarterbacks will look to cement their legacies even further.NEXT: Micah Parsons Posts Emotional Message To Dismissed Coaches
