Cue Diddy and Skylar Grey's "I'm Coming Home," because Washington Redskins offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio is coming back to the Washington, D.C., area.

Kouanjio – a 6-foot-5, 310-pound Alabama product – played high school football at DeMatha Catholic High School, which is less than seven miles away from FedExField.

So does that make him a lifelong Redskins fan?


"Actually, my older brother was always a big Redskins fan and it kind of just rubbed off on me growing up a little bit," he told the media on Saturday. "Gosh, I mean, I couldn't imagine that I would be going back to D.C. Gosh, it feels so awesome, I get to play at FedExField. The only practice I've ever been to for an NFL team a few years ago was at the Redskins. So, it's awesome to be back there."

Indeed it is, Arie. Indeed it is. 

Welcome back!
