Sometime today the Washington Redskins will announce that they will be changing their nickname, though no new name will be revealed just yet, ESPN says.
Sports Business Daily, which first reported today’s official announcement, reported that the new name would not be announced yet because trademark issues are pending.
Last week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the franchise would not use any Native American imagery. Washington’s logo of an American Indian chief had been designed by a Native American in 1971.
