First, it was supposed to be Tuesday, as John Gonzalez of ABC7 documented. “Working my sources but apparently changing of the Redskins name will be old news come tomorrow when a bombshell report is expected to surface,” the reporter tweeted on Monday. “There’s growing buzz that unflattering news about organization could come out in just hours.”

Then a collection of posts by Dan Steinberg emerged.

Then, word around town was that on Thursday, The Washington Post would release a damning article. As of this writing, the story has not been released.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirms that there is a story and reported that the franchise has hired an attorney to review the organization’s protocols.

The team’s minority owners are reportedly trying to sell their shares in the team. Dwight Schar, Fred Smith and Robert Rothman all are not pleased with something going on in the organization.

Speculation continues to run wild as we await the news. Josh Norman, who spent four seasons with the Redskins, recently added even more fuel to the fire that is burning in Washington.
