FILE - In this Oct. 21, 2012 file photo, Washington Redskins helmets are shown during the first half of an NFL football game in East Rutherford, N.J. The team's nickname, which some consider a derogatory term for Native Americans, has faced a barrage of criticism. Local leaders and pundits have called for a name change.
