ASHBURN, Va. -- The road to the Washington Football training facility known as Redskins Park will no longer be called Redskin Park Drive.

The team is renaming it Coach Gibbs Drive in honor of the Hall of Fame, three-time Super Bowl-winning coach Joe Gibbs.

And a main street leading to the entrance of FedEx Field will be called Sean Taylor Road in memory of the late Washington safety whose career was cut short when he was murdered at age 24 in 2007.

The street sign changes are part of an organizational rebranding that began in July with dropping the Redskins name.

Washington Football Team is the official name for at least the 2020 season.
