WASHINGTON — The Locked On Washington Football Team Podcast brings you news, and everything between, ahead of WFT's start to the 2021 season this Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Tanya Snyder (CO-CEO & wife of Dan Snyder) spoke with ESPN's Adam Schefter in a lengthy interview and mentioned the list of names the franchise is deciding from, which was released in a branding video from the team earlier this summer.

These names include Red Hogs, Defenders, Armada, Presidents, Brigade, Commanders, Red Wolves and Washington Football Team.

Of the eight names suggested by the team, three have been picked as the last options for the team's impending name change. Those three names were not released in the interview, according to Schefter's story.

Back from the Labor Day weekend, we start off with news wide receiver Curtis Samuel returned Monday to Washington Football Team practice. We go over how he looked and sounded in his return, and whether or not we believe the young weapon will be available when Ryan Fitzpatrick leads WFT against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1.

Finally, a fan of the team calls in to discuss arguments, love for Ron Rivera's direction for the team, and a new name idea for the Washington Football Team. All, on this episode of the Locked On Washington Football Team Podcast!
