"I would hope that I was financially able to quit," the Pro Bowl offensive tackle told Cincinnati.com. "That's what I would hope, because if I was, my papers would be the first one in."
In recent years, there has been increased talk that the NFL will eventually place a team overseas, with London garnering the most attention.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will play a game in London again this season; it's the fourth straight year the Jags will play in England. There are two games in the city this season -- the Pittsburgh Steelers versus the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 29 and the Jaguars versus the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 27.
Whitworth believes he isn't the only one who would frown upon playing overseas on a regular basis.
"I don't see that a lot of guys would want to do that," he said. "I don't see any players that would enjoy that. Sure, you may find a handful of guys that say, 'Oh hey, that'd be cool,' but the rest of them wouldn't."
Whitworth also said a single game isn't appealing.
"I would hate it, but it is what it is," he said. "But one time, it's not fun, but you got to do what you got to do. But I wouldn't enjoy that, either."
