The Washington Commanders will go through a bit of a transition era.
The team has new owners, and they’re looking to fix all of the many issues from the Dan Snyder era.
Notably, that could include changing the team’s name again.
However, as much as some fans would love it, team president Jason Wright just said on 106.7 The Fan that they have no intention whatsoever to go back to the ‘Washington Redskins’ name, as some speculated (via Ari Meirov).

The franchise agreed to change the name from Redskins after years of debate and back and forth with members and representatives of the Native American community, as some thought it was insensitive and not a good representation of their culture.
It seems like the new front office doesn’t want to reignite that controversial debate any time soon.
Also, changing the team’s name is a possibility but not a certainty at this point.
A couple of weeks ago, Wright stated that the new owners would focus on solving several issues within the organization, but the name didn’t make their priority list for the time being.
As of now, the Commanders are looking forward to next season, as it’ll also be the dawn of a new era on the field, with Sam Howell leading the way.
At the end of the day, the most important thing about a team is success on the field, and anything else will come later.NEXT: Ron Rivera Makes Admission About Sam Howell’s Abilities
