The Redskins potentially changing their name has been one of the biggest stories in the NFL for the past week. There have been new developments nearly every day in this fast-moving story.

The latest rumor comes from Yahoo NFL reporter Charles Robinson. He says that he was told the Redskins will reveal their new name within the next 24-48 hours. He also reports that the NFL has started to take steps to tell everyone that has the Redskins name on their platforms to start scrubbing it, and to take the name off. He was not told what the new name would be...

John Keim added this late Saturday night:

The Washington Redskins are close to having a new name “sooner than later”, a source said Saturday night. Earlier in the day Yahoo’s Charles Robinson reported a name could be announced within 24 to 48 hours. After Washington announced July 3 it would review its name, the feeling was it would be a quicker process. Multiple sources said owner Dan Snyder had started talking to the league about this three weeks ago. Snyder had once wanted an Arena League team, intending to call them the Warriors.
