With news dropping Thursday morning that the Washington football team will compete simply as the Washington Football Team for the upcoming season, players have taken to social media to show their support of the decision.
Guys doing the dirty work in the trenches were the first to put their stamp of approval on things -- Jonathan Allen, Ryan Kerrigan, and Daron Payne.
Following their lead was QB1, Dwayne Haskins.

"Ready to roll!" Haskins said. "To represent my family and the DMV area. Here’s to a great season!"
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Burgundy and Gold isn't going anywhere (at least at the moment), and the previous helmet logo will be replaced by each player's individual number.
Washington will not have any change to its color scheme. It will still use burgundy and gold. The Redskins logo on the helmet will be replaced by the player’s number in gold. The Washington Football Team will debut its home uniforms in week 1 against the Eagles. pic.twitter.com/8DpC6b0Tyj— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 23, 2020
So here we are, embarking on a new season under a new name.
In the words of NBC Sports Washington's Pete Hailey, HTTWFT!
