Rams OT Andrew Whitworth announces retirement

Andrew Whitworth retirement

Former Rams and Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth has announced his retirement from the NFL. He played 16 seasons in the league, and will leave a champion after winning the Super Bowl with Los Angeles in 2022.

The Rams’ Twitter account posted a tribute to Whitworth on Tuesday.

Whitworth began his career in 2006, as he was drafted by the Bengals in the second round. He would play in Cincinnati for 11 seasons, before signing a three-year contract with the Rams that would eventually turn into five years in Los Angeles.

Not only did he retire a champion after beating his former team in the Super Bowl, but he also won the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in his last season. His resume includes four Pro Bowls and two First Team All-Pro selections and becoming the oldest player in NFL history (40-years-old) to be a starting offensive tackle,
