There's no shortage of Washington Red Wolves concepts out there, and considering it's the overwhelming fan favorite for the Washington Football Team's next name, are we really surprised?
The common theme of some of these Red Wolves designs is that they aren't exactly practical. Yeah, they're really cool, but are they something an NFL franchise would adopt, or is it something you'd only use in Madden?
One of the latest Red Wolves concepts doesn't fall under that umbrella, and it might be most realistic option we've seen, especially when you consider the team's rebranding to Washington Football team.
Washington Redwolves - Logo Concept— Matthew Harvey (@MattHarveySC) July 27, 2020
For the future of the "Washington Football Team", I wanted to share my inspiration of what I have come up with for the team.
I present to you the "Washington Redwolves."

This design combines the wolf with the "W" in the logo, and while it's not exactly the team's new "W" logo, it could be easily modified. Then the uniforms don't veer too far away from what the team already has.
"The logo also features two stripes going across the top of the letter, which symbolizes the two stripes on the D.C. flag," designer Matthew Harvey said. "The logo is to embrace the name of the red wolf as a fierce animal, as well as pay tribute in the style to the "Red Wolves" military helicopters. The logo, I feel, captures the feeling of both military and animal in this design.
There appears to be a disconnect between Red Wolves fans and the field when it comes to the team's new name. Red Wolves hysteria has grown so big they reject every option that isn't their own, while those not in favor of it fear it's a bit too unorthodox.
This design may be able to bring those two sides together, and while the fans won't have the final say in the team's permanent name, a united fanbase would be harder to ignore.
