The Washington NFL franchise, formerly known as the Washington Redskins, is officially going to change its name to the Washington Football Team.
The new team name is effective immediately, and it will remain in place "pending adoption of a new team name," the team announced in a statement on Thursday.
The name change comes after the team faced increased pressure to change its name due to its racist connotations, and the team announced on July 13 that it would be changing the team's name.
So many possibilities...
