NFL Rumors: New Details, Possible Timeline Of Redskins’ Name Change


All signs currently point toward the Washington Redskins soon changing their name.

But will they announce the franchise’s new branding before the season starts, and what might it look like?

The Washington Post on Wednesday afternoon reported that Washington’s name change could be revealed within the next two weeks. Hours later, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Washington franchise will distance itself from any Native American imagery.

Here’s Schefter’s tweet:

Critics of the Redskins long have claimed the team’s name and logo both are offensive toward Native Americans.

The franchise last week announced it would conduct a “thorough review” of the name and logo, thought it has yet to confirm a change is in the works.
