Redskins To Be Called ‘Washington Football Team’

NFL'S WASHINGTON FRANCHISE TO BE CALLED "WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM" FOR NOW

(CNN) – The creative minds in charge of coming up with a name for the former Washington Redskins may be having writer’s block.

The team announced on Thursday that for now, it will be called the Washington Football Team.

The NFL team says the interim name will allow time to go through an in-depth re-branding process, which will take into account input from players, alumni, fans and sponsors.

In the meantime, the team is working to retire all Redskins branding, with the hope of it being completed by September 13th.

The same day as the team’s home opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
