Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher, and rookie running back Alfred Morris were both named to the 2012 Associate Press (AP) NFL All-Pro 2nd team as voted on by sports writers across America.
Fletcher had another banner year despite turning 37. The inside linebacker started all 16 games (NFL record 241 starts in a row since 1998) made 139 tackles, three sacks and five interceptions this season while being bothered most of the year by injury. London was also named as a alternate for the Pro Bowl this year. London Fletcher continues to show people every year just how special a player he truly is.
Morris is officially the newest ‘Shanahan running back’ to take the league by storm after being a late round pickup. Alfred Morris set a new franchise rushing record and smashed every Redskins rookie record on the books this season. Morris’s numbers on the year; 335 rushes for 1,613 yards, 4.8 yards per carry and 13 touchdowns. Morris was the Redskins key element in an offense that ranked 1st in the NFL in rushing this year and was also named as a Pro Bowl alternate.
