On Monday, the team announced the change in a statement posted to its Twitter account, following a review of the name launched by the team and the league on July 3.
The statement said the team has not yet decided on a new name. Daniel Snyder, the team’s owner, and Coach Ron Rivera are working to develop a new name, according to the release.
“We’ll never change the name. It’s that simple. NEVER—you can use caps.” – Team owner Daniel Snyder, 2013
