WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins have taken the first step toward landing a new stadium. Just where the process of finding a new home lands them is still unclear.
The Redskins have "started the process" of designing a new stadium, Redskins owner Dan Snyder told
"Whether it's Washington, D.C., whether it's another stadium in Maryland, whether it's a stadium in Virginia, we've started the process," Snyder said.
The Redskins began playing at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., in 1997.
Snyder said the team made the move with an eye toward bringing a Super Bowl to the area.
"I think this region, not only this town, this region deserves a Super Bowl. It ought to be here, it would be a fantastic accomplishment," Snyder said. "It's the biggest sporting event in the globe. It's the nation's capital, it's a no-brainer."
No timeline for the plans' approval has been set, Snyder said.
Team spokesman Tony Wyllie told USA TODAY Sports no further details were available at this time.
