The Washington Football Team is set to unveil its new name ahead of the 2022 season.
Co-CEO Tanya Snyder said the franchise is down to 3 finalists.
WFT, Redwolves, and Presidents are among a list of potential names that have been rumored.
The Washington Football Team will play with their minimalist branding through the 2021 season but will unveil a new moniker ahead of next year.
As a guest on the Adam Schefter Podcast, WFT Co-CEO Tanya Snyder said that the team was down to three potential candidates.
While she would not confirm which three had made it to the final cut, Snyder did appear to acknowledge the accuracy of Schefter's list of eight semifinalists he had heard were in the running.
"I heard the eight - we had the Armada, the Presidents, the Brigade, the RedHogs, the Commanders, the Redwolves, the Defenders, and WFT - I think those are the candidates, right?" Schefter asked. "That's right," Snyder replied. "Has that been said?"
The names listed by Schefter were also featured in a team video as part of its "Making the Brand" series.
At the end of the video, team president Jason Wright said that the team was down to three final contenders, though the options were hidden to keep their secrecy.
While the team has publicly tested the waters with these eight names, Wright tweeted out in August that the list was "no form of final 8 list," but instead just the selection of possible names shown during the production of the video.

In other words, one or more of the finalists may not be from the list of eight.
