Los Angeles Rams: 4 biggest snubs from 2019 Pro Bowl
1. Andrew Whitworth
The fact that Andrew Whitworth was willing to leave the Cincinnati Bengals after all those years, and join a team like the Rams in 2017 after they were coming off a four-win season shows how much faith the veteran had in what McVay was selling.
After looking at how horrendous the offensive line was prior to the arrival of McVay, Los Angeles made it a top priority to improve the unit during the 2017 offseason, which they did with Whitworth.
Over the years, Whitworth has established a reputation for being one of the league’s top offensive lineman, and it’s been amazing to watch him help turn things around for the Rams since coming on board last season.
Prior to the 2018 season, Whitworth seemed like he would be a lock to earn a trip to the Pro Bowl for a fourth year in a row as long he remained healthy, but it looks like that is no longer the case.
From the perspective of the Rams, Whitworth was an easy choice when it comes to the top snub since he plays a big role as well in the success behind Goff and Gurley. Clearly, Whitworth is a one of a kind player, and it’s a shame to see his Pro Bowl streak come to an end when looking at some of the other players who ended up with a spot over the veteran.
