The Washington Redskins are changing their name.

According to the Sports Business Journal's John Ourand, the organization will announce the change on Monday.

Yahoo's Senior NFL reporter Charles Robinson reported the change was coming to an ESPN radio station on Saturday.

According to the Associated Press, several Native American organizations sent NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a letter earlier this week demanding team owner Dan Snyder to change the team's name.

On Thursday, Amazon pulled the organization's merchandise off their website.
