Four-year Redskins offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus has found a new home.

Thursday he signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons, joining some former Redskins teammates and coaches. But first he had to say goodbye to the team he played for the longest in the NFL.

Polumbus started in 42 of 47 games with the Redskins, starting all 16 games in 2013 at right tackle.

He'll also be remebered for philanthropic efforts during his time in Washington. He began "Tyler's Kids Outreach" program and continued to foster it with his wife and the Redskins organization.

He wants to continue building it, and help other players start their own foundations. 

"It's certainly something I want to do for the rest of my life," he said last year, "and really to the point where we'd like to make it bigger where we'd start an organization where we can run programs for other players that wouldn't necessarily have the opportunity to run their own foundation either because they don't know how to do it or they don't want to go through the legal work that is required to start their own foundation."

Best of luck, Tyler.
