Any guesses?
  • The Washington Bureaucracy
  • The Sellouts
  • The Capitulation
  • The Washington Team-That-Must-Not-Be-Named
  • The NFL Team Currently Located in Washington DC
Then again, considering the District is named for a slave owner (Washington) - isn't that bad too?
  • The Capitol Football Team
  • NFL Team 4
The last one is probably safest.  With the logic of 2020, you can make a case that any team names for a historical entity is racist, PETA will be after all the animal names, 
  • Cowboys?  Can't have that.   They're already after the Rangers in the MLB
  • 49ers have to go, as well as the Chiefs. (OMG - the Chiefs!!)
  • The Jets will need to go - you know - the whole West Side Story thing
  • the Chargers are appropriating nature - The Sierra Club will need that one gone
  • The Saints will need to go, considering the Catholic affiliation after their name
  • The Steel industry was rocked in the 70's by a lot of racial discrimination cases - The Steelers name will need to go.  Can't celebrate a racist industry.  
  • The Packers are named for the INDIAN Packing Company.   Nope.  nada.  
Let's see, that will leave....
  • The Browns
  • The Raiders (this one may be objectionable as it does include a Pirate)

I think the Sporting News nailed the Redskins new name about 10 years ago. “indigenous Native Americans”

They could call themselves the Congresspersons as neither has done anything in the last 20 years. Of course there will people upset with this name as well, but it will not be the first time people got upset over nothing.p

Well....except for those thought of as 'Indians' were neither indigenous, nor native....   but the 'woke culture' never let something as irrelevant as 'facts' get in their way...

the "Washington Football Team"

Actually, the big question is - when is the Commish going to step up to the microphone and say, with Washington done - "The Chiefs are on the clock"?
