Andrew Whitworth is going out on top. After winning his first Super Bowl and being named Walter Payton Man of the Year in his final NFL season, Whitworth is retiring from football.
The 40-year-old left tackle announced his retirement on Tuesday.
Whitworth spent 16 seasons in the NFL, the last five of which were with the Rams. He’s a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro, starting a whopping 235 regular-season games in his career.
The Rams signed him in 2017 after the Bengals let him leave in free agency that offseason, and it proved to be one of the best moves of the Sean McVay era. Whitworth has been a stud at left tackle for the Rams, only posting one season with a PFF grade lower than 82.1 while in Los Angeles.
