Things are moving very fast for the Redskins name change. Today the team announced they would undergo a thorough review of their name. The NFL has been talking with Dan Snyder about the change, and they support it. Major sponsors Nike, PepsiCo, and FedEx have all made statements or moves to advocate for a name change.
Now multiple sources are reporting that the Redskins will have a new name before the 2020 season starts(if it starts). This would be a huge change for the franchise, and one that people have been pushing for for years.
