I know some of you are tired of this topic. If you’re one of those people, keep in mind that you clicked on the headline that clearly states this is a post about the Redskins name.
DeAngelo Hall was on the Fox Sports show “Keepin’ it Real with Mike Hill,” and at the end of the conversation was asked if the Redskins should change their name.
“I think eventually they will change it,” said Hall.
When pressed by Hill to give a more definitive answer, or “keep it real,” if you will, Hall went a step further.
“They probably should,” he admitted. “But they won’t for a while at least.”
As far as I know, Hall is the first current Redskins player to offer an opinion other than full support of the name. Most of the players have either stayed mum on the subject or offered middle-of-the-road answers, aside from receiver Josh Morgan. In May, Morgan, who grew up in Washington, spoke about Daniel Snyder’s declaration that the team’s name will never change.
“I grew up right down the street from RFK stadium,” he said at the time. “As a matter of fact, I’m sitting here right now. All I know is the Redskins, so I’m glad we’re not going ever to change the name.”
