Eric Dickerson still holds the mark for the most rushing yards in a single season (2,194). Dickerson broke that mark in 1984 in his second NFL season. 33 years later, Dickerson will be honored by the organization retiring as a member of the Rams.
Dickerson had this to say about finally retiring as a member of the Los Angeles Rams:
“It feels amazing to sign this contract and officially be a Los Angeles Ram for life,” Dickerson said. “My passion for this organization during my playing days and for the players wearing Rams jerseys now, is undeniable. This is where my career started and this is where my heart is, so closing this chapter with the Rams back in Los Angeles feels right. I would like to thank Stan Kroenke and the Rams for this opportunity and all of the fans for their outpouring support over the years.”
Dickerson is one of the best to ever do it in a Rams uniform. He made the Pro Bowl in six of his eleven NFL seasons. With the Rams back in LA for their second year since returning to the city, Dickerson’s honor was well deserved. Dickerson had a long history with former head coach Jeff Fisher but now those appear to be resolved as Dickerson has been welcomed back with open arms.
