It’s Official: Washington Dropping “Redskins” nickname

See the press release

Amid growing pressure to drop it’s longtime “Redskins” nickname, Washington DC’s NFL team announced in a press release this morning that it is doing exactly that.

The team logo will be changed as well. Head coach Ron Rivera told The Washington Post in an interview that he was working with Snyder on a name that “would honor both the military and Native Americans”. 

The Cleveland Indians recently announced they too are considering changing their team’s name.
