Rams’ Whitworth retires after 16 years capped by first ring


AP Sports Writer

Left tackle Andrew Whitworth is retiring after a 16-season NFL career capped by his first Super Bowl championship last month with the Los Angeles Rams. Whitworth turned 40 last December and became the oldest player in the modern NFL to start a game at left tackle. The two-time All-Pro protected Matthew Stafford’s blind side throughout the playoffs and into the Rams’ championship victory at their own SoFi Stadium.
