Andrew Whitworth is leaving the NFL the same way every young football player hopes to do it. Whitworth won the Super Bowl this year as a member of the Los Angeles Rams. Now, the star left tackle is calling it a career.

Whitworth announced his retirement via Instagram. Hundreds of fans wished him the best. Many thanked him for his contribution towards making their team champions.

Whitworth reflected on his career in a video that was attached. Andrew said the game of football taught him how to rise to challenges, overcome failures, and develop a relentless work ethic. The caption included a hint that we haven’t seen the last of him.

“My chapter may have closed on the field, but my story is unfinished. Can’t wait for the next one.

Thank you to everyone who has been part of my journey!”

Andrew Whitworth was not sure if 2021-2022 would be his last season. Two days before Super Bowl LVI, he decided that if he won the big game, he’d retire. Now he has lived up to his word.

Andrew was a four-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro. Whitworth is the only NFL player in history to start at left tackle after the age of 40. It was a career well spent and well earned. Congratulations to Andrew Whitworth!
