NFL: Washington Franchise Expected to Announce New Name Change


Daniel Snyder, the owner of the NFL's Washington team, is expected to announce the retirement of the Redskins name and reveal the new team name on Monday morning, a source told USA Today Sports.

The new name for the team at this point is a secret, but among those considered on social media include Warriors, Red Wolves and Redtails.

Native American tribes and other organizations have been calling for the franchise to change the team's name, but Snyder ignored such requests until about two weeks ago, when one of the team's most prominent corporate sponsors encouraged him to make the change.
