Washington NFL team to retire 'Redskins' name and logo

Posted: Updated:

 

The Washington Redskins will retire its team name and logo effective immediately after 87 years. In a statement released by the team Monday morning, the decision was made upon the completion of a review.

No new name has been announced yet. The team's statement says owner Dan Snyder and Coach Ron Rivera are working on it. 

Native American experts and advocates have long protested the name they call a “dictionary-defined racial slur.” The name dates to 1933 when the team was still based in Boston.
