Change has already come to the nation’s capital, both on and off the field. But as the Washington Football Team presses on during the 2020 season, a few huge priorities for the future of the franchise hang in the balance. New team president Jason Wright addressed these in the latest edition of the “President’s Weekly Brief” on the team’s website.

“In the coming weeks and months, you are going to hear more about two major priorities -- the development of our new identity and the search for our new home -- and both will really get moving this winter and into the new year,” Wright wrote. “In support of both of those efforts, I am meeting with many community, business, and government leaders in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.”

Wright then detailed meetings with Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, both of which grew up as fans of the Washington Football Team according to Wright. Governor Hogan recently told JP Finlay of his desire to keep the team in the state of Maryland, something Wright appears willing to entertain.

“I want to note how inspiring I found County Executive Alsobrooks and Gov. Hogan's mutual respect for one another and eagerness to collaborate with each other, across party lines, on behalf of the state,” Wright wrote. “I've also started to engage with leaders in DC and Virginia and am really looking forward to the big meetings ahead on my calendar. I'm proud to call this area home!”
