SEE IT: This new Red Tails design combines history and style

The Red Tails movement for the new Washington Football Team name change just got a boost. 

With the planes memoralizing the first Black fighter pilot combat unit during World War II, this new design is certainly something the team can work with. Whether it’s the Washington “W” or the airplane-styled “t” in Tails, the options are as sleek as ever, thanks to Ryan Curley on Instagram.

Following the groundbreaking hire with new president Jason Wright, the first Black president of an NFL team, implementing a new team name based off such an honorable moment in this nation’s history could be just what this franchise needs. 

Though the Red Wolves name is gaining more momentum among the Burgundy and Gold’s loyal fanbase, this new design could prove to be a formiddable challenger.

Vernon Davis retired from football earlier this year, and after an impressive 15-year career he might have an outside chance at the Hall of Fame. His career numbers put him in the Top 10 of almost every tight end category. 

It appears Davis still wants some competition though. To scratch that itch Davis will join Dancing with the Stars this fall. A number of former NFL players have gone on the show, including Emmitt Smith, Von Miller and Kurt Warner.

Look, I don’t know much about Dancing with the Stars. I don’t know much about dancing. Davis does, and wants to continue his acting career, so this seems like a good way to do it. 

From US Weekly: 

The ballroom awaits! Us Weekly can exclusively confirm that Anne HecheJesse Metcalfe and Vernon Davis are all set to compete on the upcoming 29th season of Dancing With the Stars. According to sources, the three celebs will compete for the Mirrorball trophy when the season premieres on Monday, September 14.

Davis got close to a Lombardi Trophy playing with the 49ers in 2012, but never won one. Maybe he can get the Mirrorball instead.

Paul Richardson entered the 2019 season as one of Washington’s starting wide receivers, but after being released in February, he is returning to his roots with the Seahawks.

Seattle drafted Richardson in 2014, and he spent four seasons there before agreeing to a deal with Washington prior to the 2018 season. In two years in the Burgundy and Gold, Richardson played in 17 games (starting 10) and reeled in 48 catches for 507 yards and four touchdowns.

Richardson struggled to stay healthy in Washington after only missing one game total in his final two seasons in Seattle. The best year of his career came in 2017 with the Seahawks, when he caught 44 passes for 703 yards and six scores.

Washington felt comfortable moving on from Richardson due to his injuries and the emergence of star Terry McLaurin. Now, he’s back in with the organization that drafted him.
