The Washington Football Team appears to have played their hand too early.
There has been non-stop speculation as to what the Washington Football Team’s name will be once the re-brand is complete. It appears the team may have teased a new nickname during a recent post on Twitter.
On Monday, Washington posted an “interesting submission” from a fan named Sarah.
The suggestion that the fan presented was “the Washington Redwolves”.
“…Once I saw it, I fell in love,” the fan wrote. “I really love the idea of the Washington Redwolves. I have been a fan of this team since I was born… and my dad has been a season ticket holder for a while. Can’t wait for what’s next!”
The RedWolves nickname immediately became one of the most popular names to surface online from fans after the news of the Redskins name being retired.
Fans have even gone as far to create custom uniforms for the new nickname.
