Spoiler alert: The new nickname for Washington’s football team is — Commanders.

During a radio interview Monday, Joe Theismann, former quarterback of the Washington Redskins and current Ring of Honor member of the NFL franchise, sounded thrilled, announcing the new name of the Washington’s football team.

Theismann led the Redskins to its first Super Bowl win in 1982, and the following season he was crowned MVP of the NFL.

A new team name is expected to be made public on Wednesday. Theismann spoke out on the subject in an interview with CBS Sports Radio.

“I think the Commanders is a name that is going to be one that hopefully people like going forward,” Theismann told Damon Amendolara. “There were so many different options, but once again it’s trademark infringement — it’s getting approval from different people. If you choose a name, is there a group out there that isn’t going to like it?
