ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the changes for Washington’s NFL team’s name and imagery are moving forward.
Schefter reports that there will be no Native American imagery and the nickname will be replaced as well.
According to another source, the team’s color scheme will remain the same.
There is no specific time table for the changes but these latest developments point to an expedited process.
Do you think this will be in effect before the start of the season?
And then you have the current state of college football which points to a possible delay or even postponement of the season.
