Today we’re taking a look at what players have thrown the most interceptions in their last year in the league. To make sure that we don’t include anyone who just played one or two years in the league, we’ll add the stipulation that the list will only include quarterbacks who had the last season of their career come after the age of 30.
Tied for fourth most interceptions in their final year in the NFL are Y.A. Tittle who was 38, Tommy Thompson who was 34, and Jack Kemp who was 34 when they threw 22 interceptions to end their careers.
The third most interceptions thrown in a quarterback’s last season in the league is 23 and was done by Brian Sipe in 1983 at the age of 34.
The second most interceptions thrown by a player in their last year playing in the NFL is 25 and was done by Bobby Hebert of the Falcons in 1996 when he was 36 years old.
First place on this list as the NFL quarterback who threw the most interceptions during his final season in the National Football League is Pro Football Hall of Fame member Fran Tarkenton. At the age of 38 in 1978, Tarkenton threw 32 interceptions before retiring at the end of the year.
