The team formerly known as the Redskins has been in arduous process of selecting another nickname. Part of the reason they decided to ditch their last name was due to corporate pressure, and Daniel Snyder probably figured his team could use a reboot, especially with all the reports of a toxic culture. Now it appears the team may be closing in on a nickname. According to the Washington Post, more than 40,000 people have voted for the Red Wolves.
Via Washington Post:
“More than 40,000 fans of the Washington Football Team have suggested new names to replace the old one that shall go unmentioned. This writer, a longtime season ticket holder, has a preference. It would link the team’s future with its once-glorious past without offending Native Americans or anyone else. The Washington Red Wolves.”

Twitter reacted to the front runner:
Washington Red Wolves. I like it. Wolves are amazing & Red Wolves are highly endangered. There are lots of bird mascots, but no canines, right? Go Wolf pack!

Red Wolves? Meh. Our colors don't include red, there aren't wolves around DC, there are more powerful, smarter, faster, more everything animals than a wolf. Too vanilla for me. I like Demon Cats if we have to change but I like WFT. #WashingtonFootballTeamhttps://t.co/SeJobR7L29

Not really liking the front runner for the new name of The Washington Football Team. I’m thinking maybe just go with Washington Team: Football which gives them the far more interesting WTF acronym.https://t.co/OOWGwF8Sdj

A team website lists a handful of “featured fan submissions,” complete with uniform designs.
They include Revolution, Memorials, Owls and Rhinos, along with Redwolves, Warriors and Redtails.
At this point, they should probably just stick with the Washington Football Team. They made the playoffs last year, and it certainly helps them stand out.
Snyder will figure out a way to screw things up, so it really doesn’t matter what they’re called.
