Washington to review team nickname after calls for change

Washington announced Friday that the franchise will “undergo a thorough review of the team’s name” following requests for a change to its nickname.

The team said the review formalizes the initial discussions it has had with the NFL in recent weeks. 

“In light of recent events around our country and feedback from our community, the Washington Redskins are announcing the team will undergo a thorough review of the team’s name,” the organization said in a statement. 

The team is expected to change its name, Rick Maese and Mark Maske of The Washington Post reports. A source told the Post that team owner Dan Snyder, who has previously opposed a name change, “has been listening to different people over the last number of weeks.”
