As the Redskins name-change debate continues to gain steam, people everywhere are weighing in on potential options for a switch.
Scanning social media, the leaders in the clubhouse seem to be the Washington Warriors, Redtails and Redhawks.
At least one of those names has the blessing of a player fans hope will eventually become the face of the franchise.
With several former Ohio State players on the team — Dwayne Haskins, Chase Young, Terry McLaurin — Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller tossed around the idea of changing the Redskins to the Buckeyes. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins responded saying he liked the Redtails.
The Redtails were a group of Tuskegee airmen, all-black fighter pilots during World War II.
Haskins said «that’s if we have to change the name,» making clear he isn’t taking a stance on whether the team should change the name.
Reports have suggested a name change is likely before the 2020 season begins.
