Who is the oldest Night net quarterback? Tom Brady, Drew Brees & the 'old guys' in 2021 playoffs

  • Night net Buccaneers Saints Steelers The 2020 Night net playoffs feature plenty of veteran players, but especially at the quarterback position. Players like Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger will lead the way in age as they all seek to improve their impressive resumes.With the recent retirement of Matt Schaub, these four quarterbacks now make up four of the five oldest quarterbacks in the league. The only older quarterback still lingering around is Josh McCown (41) who was signed the Texans' active roster in November. He didn't play for Houston, and will likely retire (for a third time) after this season, but he's still listed on the team's roster. Ben Roethlisberger referred to himself, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Philip Rivers as "all the old guys." He said, "If we were sitting at home, and people were talking about the old guys who are still playing and [said], 'Why aren't you still a part of it?' you'd be disappointed."— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) January 6, 2021Even outside of those four main quarterbacks, there other elderly quarterbacks involved in the playoffs.

According to multiple reports, Rodgers has played his last snap for the Packers, either by trade or retirement, while Green Bay brass remains adamant that the quarterback isn't going anywhere.MORE: The Packers fan's guide to coping with Aaron Rodgers trade rumors If Rodgers does ultimately end up elsewhere, it'll end an era of plenty of highs and lows for the team, which some feel had underachieved with one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.Rodgers' career with the Packers is certainly storied — three time MVP winner, Super Bowl champ — but what happened off the field may have been just as intriguing. Here's what led to the Rodgers rift in Green Bay: (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/26/4e/rodgers-favre-012421-getty-ftrjpg_vt6omgzzyu2e1q30jfyjhvppg.jpg?t=886780183&w=500&quality=80 Aaron Rodgers timelineApril 23, 2[......]

    All-Star Game voters shrug at Ryan Braun's PED past

  • Will fans ever forgive Ryan Braun for using performance-enhancing drugs and lying about it? That was the big question, the one that lau夜网论坛nched a thousand hot takes about the former MVP, whether he should give that award back, how people could explain PEDs to their children, to the point of nausea if you followed along for long enough.Surprise, surprise, the answer was for Braun to get back on the field as a performer in an entertainment enterprise and provide entertainment to paying customers. ALL-STAR GAME: Trout leads American League votingBraun has been hurt so much by his scandalous past that he is third among National League outfielders with 446,780 votes in the first round of fan balloting for the All-Star Game, behind Rockies sensation Charlie Blackmon and reigning MVP Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates. The Milwaukee slugger is sixth overall, as Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki deservedly leads all National Leaguers with 745,823 votes, followed by Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina (640,464), Blackmon (549,394), Phillies second baseman Chase Utley (509,390), and McCutchen (469,378). Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez (349,762) leads at his position, with injured Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado (318,111) rounding out the Senior Circuit's starting lineup so far. Braun has a 20,552-vote edge on Giancarlo Stanton for the third and final outfield spot, the closest margin between a prospective starter and his nearest rival.Braun entered Wednesday hitting .307/.[......]

    Johan Santana comeback moves ahead; O's add him to 40-man roster

  • Johan Santana is one big step closer to a big league return: The Orioles added the left-hander to their 40-man roster on Monday. The Orioles have selected the contract of LH Johan Santana from 3A Norfolk & placed him on the 15-day DL (recovery from L shoulder surgery).— Baltimore Orioles (@Orioles) June 2, 2014Santana could have opted out ot his deal at midnight, MASN's Roch Kubatko noted. Santana has been pitching in extended spring training as he wraps up his rehab. He could be pitching for the Birds later this month. "His rehab took a little bit longer than we had hoped," O's executive vice president Dan Duquette said, per Kubatko. "We had hoped that he'd be ready by June 1, but he's pretty close. Our guys recommended that he probably needs a couple more starts to be ready to help our team. And on the basis of the progress he's made on his rehab, we wanted to see the process through, so we purchased his contra夜网论坛ct for the major league club and he'll continue his rehab."The plan is for Santana to make a start in extended spring training on Wednesday, and two minor league rehab starts after that. That Santana, 35, is pitching right now is a testament to his competitive nature. Shoulder surgeries caused him to miss the 2011 and 2013 seasons with the Mets, and his 2012 season was cut short by ankle and back ailments.[......]
