Robert Griffin III backed up his black sedan to the double doors at the entrance of Redskins Park, hopped out and plopped a red and white stocking cap on his head.
The offensive line anxiously waited in the lobby while the quarterback grabbed handfuls of gratitude from within the trunk.
On Christmas Eve, Griffin III surprised his protectors with green bags full of Xbox One consoles.
“It’s the giving season,” Griffin III said. “It doesn’t matter what our record is; I still appreciate those guys.”
“We’re all going through this together right now. I just wanted to bring a little joy into Redskins Park.”
Trent Williams jumped up and down and hugged his quarterback. Adam Gettis hammed up his emotions while the big men cheered.
In 2012, Griffin III bought portable speakers for the linemen. This year he wanted to step up his gift-giving game.
“This is something you do,” the quarterback said.
“You don’t just do it after good seasons. You do it after any kind of season. These are the guys that you fight with all offseason to get better. A lot of those same guys I’ll be fighting with next year.”
