It’s official: Washington’s NFL team announces it will change name


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.
