Redskins’ social-media rebrand kicks off, shares excited player reactions
The NFL’s Washington franchise has officially retired the “Redskins” name and has now begun the process to rebrand the entirety of their presence, both physical and digital, to the temporary “Washington Football Team” name.
If you look up @WashintgonNFL on Twitter, you’ll notice that the team has already started with its social media and the players are all for the rebrand.

Defensive tackle Jonathan Allen was one of the first to tweet out his approval of his team’s 2020 look posting a photo with the caption,”Vision all 2020″ followed by a pair of emojis. Allen would be then followed by fellow defensive linemen Daron Payne and four-time Pro Bowler Ryan Kerrigan, who both shared the same sentiment that the changed look and new name are both fire.
Washington’s quarterback of the future Dwayne Haskins also chimed in with his own post claiming he’s”Ready to roll” and “represent his family in the DMV area.”
Haskins and his teammates seemed optimistic about the changed and hopefully this ushers in better days in Washington, both on and off the turf.
Earlier, the team officially announced it would be mean known as the “Washington Football Team” until they adopt a new team name. It was also reported that they plan to completely wipe out the Redskins name and logo from all of their presence in both digital and physical form in the next 50 days. The Twitter account was the first noticeable sign of this and more changes can be expected in the coming weeks leading up to the team’s season-opener.
