WASHINGTON - Signs bearing what appears to be the Washington Football Team's new name were spotted at the stadium Tuesday night – less than 24 hours before the official announcement.
SkyFox captured aerial images of Commanders signs inside the team store located at FedEx Field.
The team officially retired the 'Redskins' name and logo in 2020.
Last month, Washington Football officials released seven potential names and said it would reveal the one that was selected on Feb. 2.
"The Commanders is a name that is going to be hopefully one that people will talk about going forward," Theismann said on-air.
"Commanders basically is Washington, D.C.," Theismann continued. "A lot of commanders in Washington, D.C. – in the Pentagon – and a lot of different branches of the service. So to me, that's really the way I'm looking at it – as positions of leadership when it comes to the new name."
FOX 5 also spoke with Shawn DuBravac, a technology expert, who said that publicly available data suggests to him that whoever owns Commanders.com is about to do something with it, and it’s logical to think it could be the new name for Washington’s NFL team.
"The fact that Mark Monitor has large corporate clients, it’s most likely a large organization that’s using this. It isn’t somebody who’s just speculating in the name, but likely a corporation that plans to use it. It also happens that Mark Monitor has a deep relationship with the NFL and many of the teams," DuBravac said.
The listing on Mark Monitor implies more permanency than GoDaddy, DuBravac said. Plus, all but six teams have their sites listed on Mark Monitor.
