Andrew Whitworth Career

Whitworth attended LSU from 2001 to 2005. Whitworth did not play in the 2001 season as he was redshirted. In 2002, he started as a redshirt freshman every game, and was recognized as a first-team Freshman All-American by The Sporting News and Football Writers Association. As a sophomore in 2003, he started in all fourteen games. The team went 13–1 en route to a BCS national title with a Sugar Bowl defeat of Oklahoma. He led the team with 1,008 snaps and credited with 105 key blocks, including 82 knockdowns. In 2004, Whitworth led the team with 799 snaps from scrimmage as the Tigers went 9–3 with a Citrus Bowl berth against Iowa. His play was key for an offense that scored 39 TDs and averaged 395.6 yards per game. He was credited with 96 key blocks, including 66 knockdowns, and played every offensive snap during a four-game stretch against Georgia, Florida, Troy, and Vanderbilt. Helping LSU to an 11–2 record, he played left tackle in 2005. That season was capped by a 40–3 Peach Bowl win over Miami (Fla.). He played every offensive snap in nine of the thirteen contests, for an offense that averaged 374.1 yards per game. By not allowing a sack all season, he finished his career with 22 straight games of no sacks allowed. He was credited with 104 key blocks/knockdowns. Whitworth played in the East–West Shrine Game on January 21, 2006 in San Antonio, Texas.

His 52 career starts from 2002–2005 rank second in NCAA Division I history behind Derrick Strait of Oklahoma (53 starts, 2000–2003). He earned All-Southeastern Conference first-team honors in each of his last two seasons, including a consensus nod as a senior.

Professional career

Whitworth was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round (55th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft. He made his NFL debut on special teams on September 10 against Kansas City. He started at left guard in the following week against the Cleveland Browns, as part of a line shuffle where left guard Eric Steinbach replaced injured Levi Jones at left tackle. Whitworth helped the Bengals pile up 481 yards against Browns, including 145 rushing yards by Rudi Johnson. He was in the starting lineup for Carson Palmer. He also had a key block on Rudi Johnson's seven-yard touchdown run in first quarter.

On July 25, 2008, Whitworth agreed in principle to a four-year extension worth a reported $30 million that would keep him in Cincinnati through 2013. He was ejected from a preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars after getting into a fight with Jaguars defensive end John Henderson.

In 2009, head coach Marvin Lewis decided to move Whitworth from guard to left tackle and saw immediate impact. He started all sixteen games of the season, allowing just five sacks and helping running back Cedric Benson have a breakout year rushing for 1,251 yards. On December 12, 2010 Whitworth caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Carson Palmer against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was the first of his career, and he was the first Bengals offensive lineman to catch a touchdown pass since 1995.

He was ejected from a game against the Oakland Raiders after throwing a punch during a skirmish late in the game. He was subsequently fined $26,260 for the incident.

In January 2013, for the first time in his career, Whitworth was named a left tackle on the AFC Pro Bowl team.

During the 2014 season, Whitworth allowed zero sacks and only one hit on quarterback Andy Dalton. Due to his success, many pundits and experts have claimed that Whitworth was snubbed out of a second Pro Bowl berth, however, he was named second-team AP NFL All-Pro. He was voted as the 67th best player by his peers in the 2016 list.

Whitworth signed a one-year contract extension with the Bengals on September 26, 2015.

On March 9, 2017, Whitworth signed a three-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams. In his first season with the Rams, Whitworth made it to his fourth Pro Bowl. He was ranked 87th by his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2018.

In 2018, Whitworth helped the Rams reach Super Bowl LIII after they defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the Divisional Round and New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game. The Rams lost to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

In the eighth week of the 2019 season, the Rams defeated the Bengals 24–10, giving Whitworth a victory over his former team. With that victory, Whitworth became only the 12th starter in league history to earn victories against all 32 NFL teams.

On April 1, 2020, Whitworth signed a three-year contract with the Rams. On November 16, Whitworth was placed on injured reserve, as he was carted off the field after suffering a torn MCL and damaged PCL in a 23–16 home win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. He was placed on injured reserve the next day. He was activated on January 7, 2021, before the team's playoff game.

Whitworth was named the 2021 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year at the 11th Annual NFL Honors. Whitworth won his first Super Bowl in what would ultimately be his final game, after the Rams defeated his former team, the Cincinnati Bengals, 23–20 in Super Bowl LVI.

On March 15, 2022, Whitworth announced his retirement after 16 seasons.

Broadcasting career

After retiring in 2022, Whitworth joined Amazon’s Thursday Night Football crew as an analyst.


Whitworth cracks door open for sensational return from retirement at 41 after Collins injury, December 28, 2022
Former Bengals and Rams offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth has opened the door for a surprise return from retirement in the wake of La'el Collins' season-ending ACL tear. Collins, the team's starting right tackle, suffered the injury against the Patriots last weekend with the playoffs on the horizon for the 11-4 squad. And while Whitworth rode off into the sunset after his Rams won the Super Bowl vs. the Bengals last season, there's apparently a slight chance he could suit up again.

NFL GAMES OF THE WEEK - WEEK 9: Rams-Bucs, Titans-Chiefs, Packers-Lions, Bills-Jets, Seahawks-Cards, November 3, 2022
Week 9 of the National Football League season gets started Thursday night with the severely underwhelming prospect of the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles on the road at the struggling, 1-5-1 Houston Texans. While an NFL Sunday always springs a surprise, with Week 9 likely to be no exception, the slate is not quite as eye-catching as previous weeks.  NFC frontrunners Dallas (6-2), the New York Football Giants (6-2) and the San Francisco 49ers (4-4) are all on a bye week. So too, are Russell Wilson's potentially resurgent 3-5 Denver Broncos, the plucky 2-6 Pittsburgh Steelers and AFC North rival Cleveland (3-5).

Tom Brady loses 3 games straight, TNF pundits bemoan 'lost' and 'broken' Buccaneers, October 28, 2022
Things are not improving anytime soon for Tom Brady following the Buccaneers' latest 27-22 loss against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football, as the seven-time Super Bowl champion is off to the worst start of his career through eight game with Tampa Bay sitting at two games under a winning record (3-5). Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense came alive in the second half and dominated the game on the ground. Brady and the Bucs offense struggled for large parts of the night once again and remained static during most of their offensive possessions.   The Amazon Prime crew, consisting of former NFL players Ryan Fitzpatrick, Richard Sherman, Tony Gonzalez and Andrew Whitworth, weren't too kind with the 45-year-old's latest display in Tampa.
