Washington's football team will have a new name and logo shortly, and that's a decision that FedEx approves of.
"We appreciate the team's decision to change its name and logo, and we look forward to the outcome of the next step in the process," the company said in a statement released to NBC Sports Washington on Monday afternoon.
FedEx, of course, has been applying pressure on the Burgundy and Gold for days now, dating back to when they formally called upon the organization on July 2 to drop "Redskins." They were the first of now a large group of partners and sponsors to take such a stance.
More recently, there were rumblings that the company would remove all signage from the team's stadium, which bears FedEx's name, after the 2020 season if there was no change.
Frederick Smith, the CEO of FedEx, is also a minority owner of Washington. He and two others are reportedly looking to sell their stakes, however, though they've been unsuccessful in doing so thus far.
Now, FedEx — like everyone else — is awaiting the "next step" in this story, which will presumably include the franchise's new name.
