Washington Redskins Changing Name To RedTails Or RedWolves

The Washington Redskins retired the “Redskins” portion of the organization’s name on Monday. For the first time since 1933, the football team will move ahead under a different moniker in the 2020-21 season.

Initially, team owner Dan Snyder was vocally opposed to the idea of changing his franchise’s name. As recently as a few years ago, he pledged he would never do so.

However, due to recent financial pressure placed on him by FedEx and league merchandise partners, Snyder eventually relented.

On Monday, Washington’s football team revealed that “Redskins” was getting retired and a new name would be announced. Unfortunately, due to trademark issues, the new name could not be announced yet.

That said – two names have emerged from the pack as the clubhouse leaders. Those two names: the RedTails and the RedWolves.

Team quarterback Dwayne Haskins came out recently and endorsed “RedTails” as his favorite.

However, on Twitter, RedWolves also appears to be gaining steam as a potential option.

A final decision on the new name will likely come at some point in the next few weeks. Hopefully, once that matter is resolved, the organization can switch focus to actually playing quality football – something it has not done in a very long time.
