The Washington Redskins are closing in on a change of nickname

The Washington Redskins on Monday announced the team will no longer be called the Washington Redskins, but it didn't announce the new logo and team name.

While the Warriors and Americans monikers are still possibly on the table, McCaulay added almost every possible nickname that has been floating around the internet since the Washington, D.C, team announced it was reviewing the name. "We appreciate the statements made in recent days regarding the league and the team's intention to revisit the name". This time, crucially, the circle of opponents widened to include Federal Express, which has naming rights to the team's stadium and also a minority stake in the team.

One source told Sports Business Journal that the team "felt it was important to remove any doubts as to the future of the name".

Following weeks of protests denouncing racism and promoting the Black Lives Matter Movement, the Washington Redskins took the first step towards change.

"We believe it is time for a change", PepsiCo had also said, while Nike removed the team's merchandise and gear from its website.

Coach Ron Rivera said he hoped the new name could be in place by the start of the 2020 season.

The team said, "We want to keep our sponsors, fans, and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward".

Snyder and others defending the name say it is meant to honor Native Americans. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he is "supportive" of a name change.

"It's that simple. NEVER-you can use caps", Snyder said.

The move completes a swift about-face from Washington owner Dan Snyder, who previously vowed that the nickname would continue on as it has since 1933, when it was created by former owner George Preston Marshall.

"I think it's striking that the National Football League and other owners of other sports teams don't have a conversation with Native America on these names", Halbritter said. Washington's logo of an Indian chief had been designed by a Native American in 1971.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported Saturday that a name change was "imminent".
