What a moment for Washington Redskins rookie offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio Sunday afternoon.

Seventeen years ago, Kouandjio walked through Dulles Airport for the first time. It marked the beginning of his time in the United States. Sunday, he was back at Dulles, this time preparing to start life as a Redskin.

It's been a pretty fun week for Kouandjio, as the University of Alabama product is returning to the area he called home for years.

"Gosh, I mean, I couldn't imagine that I would be going back to D.C.," he told reporters last weekend. "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."
