Eric Dickerson signs 1-day deal to retire with the LA Rams – Chicago Tribune


Eric Dickerson has signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Los Angeles Rams, reuniting the famous running back with his first NFL franchise.

The Rams formalized the deal at their training complex Tuesday, with Dickerson wearing his Hall of Fame blazer to complete the paperwork.

Dickerson set the single-season NFL rushing record and suited up for four playoff teams during his tenure with the Rams from 1983-87. He is still among the most popular players in franchise history, with his jersey frequently outnumbering those of any current player in the Coliseum stands.

“I’m really happy for this moment, because even when I left the Rams, I was always a Ram,” Dickerson said. “I was always a Los Angeles Ram. I never wanted to leave this football team when I got traded. My heart was broken, just like a lot of fans’ hearts were broken that day.”
