On July 3, the franchise announced it would undergo a thorough review of its name. While it's uncertain what the next name will be, it is one a source close to the situation said Snyder was excited about.

Washington team owner Daniel Snyder is expected to announce that the "Redskins" moniker will be retired as early as Monday.

On Sunday, multiple outlets reported the team was changing its name, which is offensive to Native Americans.

District of Columbia mayor Muriel Bowser has said the name was an "obstacle" to Snyder building on the old RFK Stadium site, which is believed to be his preference.

The team was established in 1932 as the Boston Braves and took on its current name in 1933 before moving to Washington DC four years later.

The name change isn't off to a great start.

The team moved to Washington D.C. prior to the 1937 season and has utilized that nickname ever since. USA Today reports that defenders often cited a poll conducted by The Washington Post in 2016 that showed 90 percent of Native Americans say they were not offended by the nickname.
