Could the Washington Redskins be ready to change their nickname? There are some developments indicating that’s possible. TMZ Sports is reporting that a neighbor of the team’s owner, Dan Snyder, has registered the trademark “Washington Bravehearts.” TMZ reports wealthy patent investor Aris Mardirossian took that step October 17th. TMZ says the application states that Mardirossian plans to use the name for “entertainment in the nature of football games.” TMZ was not able to get any comments from him or the Redskins management.
