Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took home 2012 Offensive Player of the Year honors, which were voted by his teammates and announced at the team’s annual Welcome Home Luncheon on Friday.

Griffin set franchise and league rookie rushing records for a quarterback and led an offense that ranked fifth in the NFL last season.

The Redskins once again voted London Fletcher defensive player of the year after he anchored their unit and made his fourth straight Pro Bowl.

Kai Forbath was voted special teams player of the year by his teammates after he, as a first-year player, made an NFL-record 17 consecutive field goals.
