If Tom Brady is retiring: who has the potential to be the next Tom Brady?

Everything seems to indicate that, at 44 years of age, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will retire after 22 years as a professional and with practically all the most important records for a quarterback in the history of the NFL.

The natural thing, by human nature, is to look for someone to take his place as the quarterback who will dominate the league, at least for the next decade, the easiest answer is to say that no one will take his place, but if we have to pick someone, these are some of the most popular choices.

Patrick Mahomes

He is the natural candidate to accomplish this feat that seems virtually impossible except for this absolute stunner for the Kansas City Chiefs who has only been in the NFL for four seasons but the level of excellence is unprecedented, even for Brady.

He is the first quarterback to be the first home quarterback in four consecutive Conference Championship Games, something not even Brady accomplished and this quarterback already did it at only 26 years of age.

If we project his current numbers of pass completions, air yards and touchdown passes, he would surpass Brady's today, playing four less seasons.

His style is very different from the seven-time Super Bowl winner, much more mobile and with a better arm, the question will always be, can he maintain this level for so long?

Josh Allen

In the Divisional Round, the current Buffalo Bills quarterback proved he can compete play-by-play with Mahomes and, like Brady, has already proven he can blow away the weak AFC East Division opposition, the difference is that now the New England Patriots would have the role the Bills had when Brady played for the Pats.

Joe Burrow

He is younger than both Mahomes and Allen and his potential is sky high, the most important comparison to Brady is that he took a perennially losing franchise and already won a postseason game for the Cincinnati Bengals for the first time in 31 years.

Other less likely options

Justin Herbert, Mac Jones, Trevor Lawrence, a quarterback yet to enter the NFL, a quarterback yet to be born.
