The Washington Redskins announced last Friday that the organization is conducting a "thorough review" of its team name, which was the team's only real choice after facing public pressure from its biggest corporate sponsors.
With a name change seeming to be inevitable, many fans have brainstormed potential ideas for the team's new moniker. However, some have even gone an extra step further, creating jersey mock-ups and new logo designs to go along with a potential new name.
Here are some of the best logo and uniforms designs that fans have created for each of Washington's potential new names.

Of course, the Redskins will very likely be changing their name. A lot of people have thrown their ideas into the ring, so here’s mine. I used the Warriors name, which allows for a very flexible interpretation. However, I went for a look the feels much more “monumental” and iconic, using Washington DC symbols and icons prominently. The color scheme is very similar, with the burgundy staying, but yellow being replaced with a more pure gold color. The primary logo features a few main elements: a shield (as a nod to the Warriors name, meant to symbolize the defense of the city), the striping taken from the DC flag, and a new “W” mark, with a small nod to the Washington Monument or a sword. The uniforms are meant to keep a traditional look, using a simple striping scheme, metallic burgundy helmet (same as what they use now), and a clean, modern font. So what do you guys think? I would love to know! #washington #warriors #redskins #football #nfl #uniform #concept #graphicdesign

Change the name to Washington Warriors. There are so many options and they don't even need to change much. pic.twitter.com/jgcLBEqnqh— Dan Town (@DanTown22) July 2, 2020

Redwolves has the most votes on my recent poll and I understand why. Can keep the color scheme and it has references to both the military and native Americans. Imagine a stadium full of fans howling? Sign me up pic.twitter.com/AaRkuR1PEJ— Jordan (@skinstoday) July 6, 2020
Washington Warhogs/War Hogs:
So just for fun with a limited color palette here is a new design for the team formerly known as the @Redskins let's call them the Washington WarHogs something modern but also honors what came before. A nice light exercise. Give me a call @NFL. pic.twitter.com/qSxlSX26gf— Aaron D. Perry (@adpsketchesmmk) July 3, 2020
