    Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray would like the Redskins to considering changing their name, especially if the team ever wants to consider relocating back into the city limits.

    According to the Washington Post, Gray said there would at least need to be discussion of a name change if the club were to consider a move from FedEx Field in Landover, Md., back into D.C.

    Owner Daniel Snyder has never shown any inclination to considering a name change since purchasing the club from the estate of the late Jack Kent Cooke, the name has been criticized for decades.

    “I think that if they get serious with the team coming back to Washington, there’s no doubt there’s going to have to be a discussion about that,†Gray said, according to the report. “And of course the team is going to have to work with us around that issue.

    “I think it has become a lightning rod, and I would be love to be able to sit down with the team … and see if a change should be made. There’s a precedent for this, and I think there needs to be a dispassionate discussion about this, and do the right thing.â€
