Redskins linebacker Fletcher wins Bart Starr Award

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher is the recipient of the Bart Starr Award, which honors an NFL player for outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community.

Fletcher will get the award in Indianapolis on Feb. 4, the day before the Super Bowl. It is voted on by the league's players. Other finalists were Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten.

Fletcher started the London's Bridge Foundation in 2003 to help underprivileged children.
