WASHINGTON (WFLA) — The Washington football team will reportedly reveal the team’s new name “over the next few days,” according to a report on ESPN radio.

According to NBC Sports, the report came from ESPN Radio’s Dallas-Forth Worth station by Yahoo’s senior NFL reporter Charles Robinson.

“Per Charles Robinson, a name change for the Washington football franchise is imminent,” Forth Worth Star-Telegram writer Clarence Hill Jr. tweeted.

“Teams have been told to scrub the old racist logo off of their platforms. Robinson says a new name could be revealed in the next few days.”

On Friday, a report indicated FedEx said in a private letter to the team it will remove its signage from the team’s stadium, now known as FedEx Field, if the name isn’t changed.
