The Rams announced on Tuesday, the Rams will sign Eric Dickerson to a one-day contract so that he can officially retire with the organization, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

“While Eric has always been a member of the Rams family, we believe that it was time to officially cement his legacy as a member of the Los Angeles Rams, as his accomplishments and contributions to our franchise deserve to be celebrated and remembered forever,” Kevin Demoff, the Rams’ chief operating officer, said in a statement.
