Redskins Announce Change to Mascot, White Skins Definitely Ruled Out as Possibility (Plus Our Top 10 Favorite Weird Mascots)

Years ago, Dan Snyder did an interview where he claimed he would never change the mascot for the Washington Redskins regardless of how outdated and offensive the name was.

In recent days, the team has announced that they are officially dropping the name effective immediately and will unveil a new name before the upcoming NFL season. This makes us wonder about other team mascots that, while not necessarily being offensive, are just pretty strange. Check out our top 10 favorite weird mascots below.
