Wednesday was a good day for offensive linemen around the NFL.
Several quarterbacks rewarded their protectors with some sweet gifts on Christmas. Washington Redskins star Robert Griffin III, sidelined for the past few weeks in a disappointing sophomore season, gave his linemen 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.”

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith gave his linemen luxury handbags.
Carson Palmer made his teammates work for their presents. The Arizona Cardinals quarterback gave his linemen hand-picked outfits to wear before they were rewarded with their gifts.

It's not clear what the Cardinals linemen ended up getting, but hopefully whatever it was worth their considerable embarrassment.
