Drew Brees praises ‘maturity’ of young quarterbacks like Mahomes, Mayfield

Over the past 20 seasons, NFL fans have been treated to the likes of Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers regularly gracing their television screens on any given Sunday.

The talent of such a group of quarterbacks is undeniable, with 10 Super Bowl victories between the quartet, as well as countless NFL records set, broken and set again. 

While age may be just a number in some aspects of life, that’s not the case for professional athletes, as much as Tom Brady would like you to think so. Brady, the oldest quarterback in the league, turned 42 earlier in August. Brees is right behind him at age 40, with several other stars including Aaron Rodgers in their late thirties. 

The harsh reality is that many of these quarterbacks will be out of the league within a few years – possibly even sooner than anticipated after the retirement of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck at the age of 29. 

According to Brees, though, the league will be left in good hands.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the reigning Most Valuable Player of the National Football League – and now, he’s the MVP for haircare as well. 

Mahomes, who rose to fame in late 2017 when he first started under center for the Chiefs, has become known for his signature hairstyle.

The 23-year-old’s iconic style has been with him since he was young. It began as a challenge with a friend to see who could grow their hair the longest before caving in and cutting it.

Mahomes powered through what he called a few “rough stages” during the growth period and quickly became attached to the longer locks. Years later, the style has become an essential part of who he is.
