As the Redskins ponder whether to change their name amid pressure from sponsors, many fans and media members have weighed in on Twitter and Instagram with ideas for what the Washington franchise could choose if it decides to retire the old name.
NBC Sports Washington’s Ethan Cadeaux put together a list of five potential options, but the suggestions have come pouring in across social media. In an effort to help keep up, here’s a comprehensive list of all the ideas that have gained steam so far.

The Washington Red Wolves? I personally like this a lot. A friend of mine sent me this picture in black and white so I thought I put a little spin on it. I believe it reaches the goal of retaining honor toward the Native American community while also pleasing the fans, the redskins are a historical team, it’s important to preserve as much of the teams history as we can. We aren’t changing as a team. We’re evolving. What do you guys think?
Washington Pigskins. Still call them The Skins or Hogs, keep the colors, fight song and print materials need little adaption, and it’s all football related so nothing for anyone to be offended by. Also tons of graphic ideas to work with #HTTP pic.twitter.com/B2z1XXM4MF— *Teej* 🔴🏆🏅🔴 (@TweeterTeej) July 3, 2020
