Could the Washington “Football Team” Keep the Name “Football Team”?!

The Washington Football Team hired Jason Wright as team president in August.

Since arriving he’s had to deal with several stories detailing harassment allegations by former employees, a name change and the rebuilding of a culture. Wright spoke to John Keim of ESPN.com in an interview on a number of subjects.

Keim asked if Could Football Team be the permanent name? Wright said, “Maybe. The name can be, in a word, awkward. It’s definitely in the running,” Wright said.

“I don’t think anything is off the table. … With this one, people are excited about the idea of a club has an identity rooted solely in the area it represents.

“It’s Football Team or it’s Football Club. We need to get underneath the why, so no matter what direction we go, we can pull on the heartstrings of folks.”
