The Washington Redskins are on the verge of a team name change after owner Daniel Snyder announced the team was undergoing a review of its “Redskins” name. Calls for the team to change its name have grown louder after FedEx, Pepsi, Nike, and many more have spoken out on the Redskins changing their name going forward.
“The Washington Redskins are close to having a new name “sooner than later”, a source said Saturday night. Earlier in the day Yahoo’s Charles Robinson reported a name could be announced within 24 to 48 hours,” Redskins insider John Keim reported.
Former Washington cornerback Fred Smoot appears to have some inside information as he took to Twitter to announce the team would be heading toward the ‘Red Wolves’ nickname.
“Our kids will understand we are now the Wolves of Washington,” Smoot tweeted on Saturday night. “WINTERisCOMING#RedWolves#FredSnow”
That nickname is also being pushed by Will Compton, who also dropped a photoshopped picture of what the jerseys and helmets might look like.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
