Dan Snyder is said to be trying very hard to avoid name leakage
A new name will come to Washington Redskins. Through its voices, the franchise aims to roll out the all-new name and brand in time for the 2020 season, which is less than two months away.

This is an incredibly fast turnaround. However, once the team announced that they had given up their controversial title long ago, it would be difficult to return this cork to the bottle. There have been suggestions that the team could use something like "Washington Football Club" to give themselves more time, but expectations remain that the new name itself is fast approaching.

"One of the people familiar with the discussions between the concession and the university said that the preference was for Washington to have its new name at the start of the training camp on July 28," Lee Carpenter of The Washington Post reported. "They have to do it soon because of the uniforms," ​​said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to reveal private conversations.

Three names stand out as distinct capabilities. Warriors, Redtails, and Red Wolves have different levels of support among fans, current and former players. There are some concerns that Warriors will not fully separate the team from Washington's Redskins racist name. Redtails is a reference to the Tuskegee pilot, who adds a military component headed by coach Ron Rivera, a member of the nearby circle of owner Dan Snyder on name issues. Red Wolves is just a great unique name that still maintains the classic franchise color scheme.

Wherever things go, Snyder keeps them close to the jacket. Carpenter says the team working on returning the brand keeps things in a tight state to avoid leaks until a decision is made. If the timeline shown above is accurate, it could be any day

"Two people familiar with the review said that Snyder relied heavily on a small group of advisers, including coach Ron Rivera," he says. "Aside from announcing the retirement of the Monday name, the most revealing details came from Rivera, who said in an July 4 interview that he and Snyder had been discussing the team's name since May."

In Rivera's previous interview, the name options were not revealed. He has said it would "be awesome" if the change was going to happen just in time for the season, clearly indicating that this is where the effort is currently laying.
