Drew Brees and Tom Brady will be superseded by the NFL’s new breed of elite quarterbacks.
That’s according to Super Bowl winner Cliff Avril who says the old order are a dying breed.
Brady and Brees are both pulling the strings at the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints respectively.
But their performances have become increasingly erratic as they enter the twilight of their careers.
NFL fans have been treated to some virtuoso performances from more youthful quarterbacks, though.
Lamar Jackson’s dynamic running game has wowed audiences.

Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson have also showcased their skills with a host of eye-catching displays,
Avril says a changing of the guard is more obvious than ever before.
“You see these young quarterback doing some great things, but they’re doing it in a different manner,” he told Starsport.
“What’s exciting with the shift is how they’re performing.
“You look at Jackson and he’s an elite runner and good passer.
“Look at Wilson – who isn’t exactly a young player – but he’s in-between the ages.
“DeShaun Watson as well is another elite player, along with Dak Prescott who has shown he’s got the numbers.
“There is a transition happening where Brees and Brady are getting the younger players stepping up and trying to take control.
“They want to show they’re up there to and this will be there league eventually.”
Speaking earlier this month, Jackson warned his rivals that there’s more to come.
"I feel like I'm just getting started," Jackson said.
"I'm still young. I still got a lot of things to work on.
“I’m still growing each and every day. I'm trying to become a better person, a better player and an all-time better QB."
