Brady is the current NFL MVP. Top of his game no question. But he turns 34 this summer. Consider the following: Montana finished his career in San Francisco at age 36. Hall of Famer Troy Aikman retired at age 34. Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw retired at age 35. Hall of Famer Dan Fouts retired at age 36. Hall of Famer Jim Kelley retired at age 36. No QB in the history of the NFL has ever won a Superbowl past the age of 38, and even that has been done only once ( Elway ). Assuming it takes a guy like Jake Locker ( or most any other rookie ) at least 2 years before he is ready for prime time, is it worth it to invest a high pick at QB to groom for the future / protect against injury ?
