    I Ranked The 21 Suggested Team Names For The Washington Football Team

    What name will Washington fans be chanting this fall?

    21. Washington Founders

    20. Washington Snyders

    19. Washington Americans

    18. Washington Feds

    17. Washington Warriors

    @RapSheet Washington Warriors and use one of their arrow logos...done and done! You’re welcome NFL

    I loved the nickname and even the OG arrow logo growing up, but it is the wrong move, and I hope the organization steers away from that now.

    16. Washington DC Seals

    Which name do you think the Washington NFL team should be called?


    One word: meh.

    When original name changes were pitched, this one was very popular. There was a weird thing where fans wanted to keep a team name with an r-word.

    11. Washington Capitals

    10. Washington United

    9. Washington Footballers

    Chase Young talking to Tom Brady.

    8. Washington Redwolves

    7. Washington War Hogs

    Terry McLaurin and Fabien Moreau embracing

    6. Washington Commanders

    5. Washington DC "the District"

    4. Washington Hogs

    3. Washington Red Tails

    Washington Redtails anyone? #GetUpDC


    Maybe the most popular choice.

    A cool way to rep the Tuskegee Airmen, but I think with the Jets in New York, another flight team might not happen.

    2. Washington Redhawks


    Native American activists actually pitched this name change.

    I would hate to add another bird into the NFL mix, but I feel like "Redhawks vs. Eagles" would have a nice ring to it.

    1. Washington Football Team

    What do you think? What name would you come up with if you owned the team?
