The leaks were okay. The Washington franchise will now be called the Commanders.
The news was officially announced by the capital team on Wednesday.
Confirmation also for the jerseys. The colors remain the same, but the outfits take a resolutely modern turn.
The Commanders name is displayed on the front of the home shirt. A stylistic idea that frankly did not work for the Browns, who ended up returning to their traditional jerseys five years later.
One legacy. One unified future.
