“Ascolta. That was daddy’s last football game. Questo è tutto,” Whitworth said via NFL Films, as confetti rained down on him and his children. “Non più. I’m gonna be home with you guys.

Whitworth, who retired at age 40 dopo 16 years in the league, four Pro Bowls and a Lombardi Trophy, wasted little time shifting his focus from his opponent to his kin.

“(io) promise I’m gonna be a better dad. I’m gonna be around more,” Whitworth insisted as his kids sat on the field, grinning ear to ear.

Before the season ended, Whitworth was named the 2021 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. And it’s easy to see why. “Big Whitis obviously as committed to his family as he was his craft. That allegiance means he’ll soon shift from being coached, to the one drawing up the Xs and Os.

Imma coach the crap outta you boys,” Whitworth excitedly told his sons. “We’re going to have some fun. Va bene? I love y’all.

That’s the heart of a champion.
