BREAKING: Washington Officially Retires The “Redskins” Team Name

It is not official.

The Washington football team announced Monday that they will change their team name and logo after 87 years of using it.

The announcement comes just days after the team said that a “thorough review” of the name would be conducted. The name has long been denounced by Native American groups as an ethnic slur. 

A new team name will be announced later.
