Art Monk, Darrell Green Support Redskins Name Change

"[If] Native Americans feel like Redskins or the Chiefs or [another] name is offensive to them, then who are we to say to them 'No, it's not'?" Monk told WTOP.

"It deserves and warrants conversation because somebody is saying, 'Hey, this offends me,'" Green said, adding that a name change should be "seriously considered."

Team owner Dan Snyder has been emphatic in his support for the Redskins name, stating that it will never change
