Growing up playing sports is fun, especially if it's with your brothers.

Fortunately enough for Redskin rookie Jonathan Allen, he's had that opportunity with all three of his brothers throughout his life, and now, as a rookie, he'll have the chance to play against two of them in the NFL.

When the Redskins visit the Lions,he'll face off with Corey Fuller  and later, Kyle Fuller, when the Redskins travel to Chicago. It's possible, in Detoroit, he could match up with Corey head-to-head.

When talking about his particular situation with all his brothers being former/current NFL players, Fuller says it is "unique."

"To us, it kind of seems normal because that is where our focus has been, our dream's been our whole life," Fuller said. "When we get older and we are able to sit back and think about it, we'll definitely just reflect on it and just realize how great that was, but right now it been normal to us, what we've been doing our whole life."

Every Fuller brother has played under head football coach Frank Beamer at Virginia Tech, a family pipeline to the university that has boosted each into NFL Draft picks.

Fuller's oldest brother, Vincent, was drafted in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft, so the rookie corner got a unique chance to watch his brother go through the NFL progression when he was younger. Ultimately, it taught Kendall how to carry himself throughout his relatively short career.

Needless to say, the Fuller family is a talented one. See the full video below.
