Time is running out for some quarterbacks in the NFL.
For two players, it’s most likely their last chance playing as a starting quarterback.
With the 2023 NFL Draft expecting to see talented quarterbacks, the current starting lineup can see a shakeup after this season.
So which two NFL quarterbacks are likely playing their last six games as a starting quarterback?
2. Tom Brady
Tom Brady is looking old and is having an off season at 45-years-old.
While he flirted with retirement to start 2022, he stuck with the NFL and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
However, this could be his last season in the NFL.

With NFL analyst Marcus Spears seeing this as Brady’s possible last season, it means he’s down to his last six regular season games.
While Brady has said nothing about retiring, retirement might happen with him not doing well in 2022.
If Brady doesn’t retire, he’d be 46 when the 2023 NFL begins.
That’s too old for someone who’s not mobile.
1. Andy Dalton
While Andy Dalton isn’t a complete disaster with the New Orleans Saints, he will not last long there.
With the team having Jameis Winston, they won’t need Dalton when Winston is healthy again.
However, if the team doesn’t want Winston, they might make a trade to get a first-round pick in 2023 to draft a quarterback.
With the 2023 draft class set to have premier passers, it’s easy to see the Saints moving up for a quarterback.
But regardless of how the Saints get their starting quarterback for 2023, it’s clear it won’t be Dalton.
Dalton’s 3-6 record this season has hurt the Saints, keeping them at the bottom of the NFC South division standings.
