It's been more than a month since the Washington Football Team's rebranding saga began and the group of top name options has more or less taken form. Though the franchise hasn't revealed their shortlist, fans have seemingly narrowed down the choices to Red Wolves, Red Tails, Warriors and Red Hawks.
These days, you can't have a name suggestion without a logo and uniform design to go with it, so a website called sportslogos.net ran a rebranding competition for each of the names we mentioned above to get the very best fan designs. After 15,000 votes were cast over the course of a week, the winners were announced.
We'll start with the fan-favorite Red Wolves, where a fan (Diego Menocal) produced an unorthodox take on the uniform concept.
These are unlike any Red Wolves design we've seen, as the red, orange and yellow pattern going down the socks and pants would be sure to draw some eyes.
It isn't necessarily my thing, but you can't argue with the results. It's hard to beat the gold helmet.
Next up, we've got a Washington Warriors concept that plays heavily into the government theme of Washington D.C. The logo, created by Cayle Christian, features the Capitol building sprouting out of a "W." The uniforms are pretty strong too.
It should honestly be a requirement for any Washington Football Team rebrand to include a gold jersey option. It's too strong a color combination to ignore.
Moving on, we take a look at a particularly strong Washington Red Tails design, created by Chad Fields.
This might be the best of the bunch. The logo is great, the uniforms are clean and I'm really liking the cursive font under the collar. The white socks and cleats are a nice touch as well.
Last but not least, the Washington Red Hawks could be considered a dark horse name option for Washington's rebranding process. However, it might be too similar to Seattle Seahawks and there are already an immense amount of bird mascots in the NFL.
Still, this design by Patrick Martin is pretty strong.
Everyone seemingly has a different preference on the team's next and likely last name change. Whatever happens though, if the team utilizes aspects of these designs it'll be hard to complain about the end result.
