The NFL team formerly known as the Washington Redskins have adopted a new name for the upcoming season.
The NFL franchise announced yesterday (Thursday) they will be called the Washington Football team pending the adoption of a new name.
The team will continue the process of retiring the former name and hopes to be entirely rid of it on physical and digital spaces in the next 50 days, by the September 13th regular-season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
They will not have any change to its color scheme, and it will still use the burgundy and gold, and the logo on the helmet will be replaced by each player’s number in gold.
