Washington Football Team to unveil new nickname and logo on February 2

The Washington Football Team is finally going to get a new identity.

Ever since relinquishing the Redskins name and logo, they’ve been known as the Washington Football Team for the last two seasons. But on February 2, the franchise will pick a new name and logo.

Two options that are out though, are the Wolves and the Red Wolves, which was announced by Washington team president Jason Wright.

The WFT are apparently considering over 30 names for the franchise, so in less than a month’s time, we’ll find out what we will call the franchise in Washington.
