The Washington Redskins are currently looking for a new name after sponsors put pressure on the team to change it due to the fact that many view it as a racist.

The Redskins had reportedly been leaning on renaming the team the “Washington Warriors” but are beginning to get pushback from the media because “Warriors” as a mascot in sports is still considered a Native American trope.

For the past week, fans have been pushing the “Red Wolves” and that name is apparently “gaining steam” as a potential new name for the team.

Fans have started designing jerseys and uniform designs for the “Red Wolves” name.

The team has still not announced a timetable for a name change but it seems like fans are enamored with the Red Wolves name.
