The Washington Football Team may remain the Washington Football Team permanently. Or it may be the Washington Football Club, Washington Red Tails or Washington Red Wolves.
Those are among the names under consideration, according to team president Jason Wright, who said Football Team, which was initially viewed as just a stopgap name, could be the team’s name for good.
“It’s definitely in the running,” Wright told ESPN. “I don’t think anything is off the table. . . . With this one, people are excited about the idea of a club has an identity rooted solely in the area it represents. Maybe it’s Football Team or it’s Football Club. We need to get underneath the why, so no matter what direction we go, we can pull on the heartstrings of folks.”
