Los Angeles Rams offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth announced his retirement Tuesday.
“My chapter may have closed on the field, but my story is unfinished. Can’t wait for the next one,” Whitworth wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to everyone who has been part of my journey!”
What we did not know is that he knew about his retirement just moments after winning the Super Bowl.
Footage just sent out shows Whitworth sitting on the field just moments after winning the Super Bowl and informing his kids that he had played his final game.
The announcement means the Rams will be looking to find a replacement at left tackle this offseason.
The 40-year-old spent 16 seasons in the NFL and was a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro selection in stints with the Cincinnati Bengals and Rams.
