ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington’s NFL team announced today that it will get rid of the name ‘Redskins.'
Team officials are announcing the move two weeks before the start of training camp.
It’s unclear when a new name will be revealed for one of the league’s oldest franchises.
The team launched a ‘thorough review’ of the name July 3. That came in the aftermath of several prominent sponsors calling for a change.
