    A new survey has found that Native Americans are more likely to be proud than offended by the name of the Washington Redskins.The survey , as reported by the , asked 500 people who identify as Native American to pick from a list of words which one best described their feelings about the Redskins name. The word most picked was “proud.”Following “proud” came “indifferent,” “annoyed,” “content,” “satisfied” and “disappointed.”The did not publish the full results of the survey, so we do not know what percentage of respondents offered each response, but regarding the word “proud Womens Dwayne Haskins Jersey ,” the reports that “most of the survey’s respondents felt that way.”that found that only 9 percent of Native Americans described themselves as offended by the Redskins name, while 90 percent said it did not bother them.Daniel Snyder celebrated that poll and will no doubt celebrate this one, as evidence continues to mount that the majority of Native Americans are not pressuring him to change his team’s name. Sometimes the best ideas are hiding in plain sight.With Week Two looming, neither Chargers running back Melvin Gordon nor Washington left tackle Trent Williams have ended their holdouts. And with Gordon planning to stay away as long as he can while still getting credit for the last year of his rookie contract and with Williams still seemingly intent on not playing for Washington again, why not do a Gordon for Williams trade?Washington needs a running back, given the injury to Derrius Guice. And L.A. needs a left tackle, given the ongoing absence of Russell Okung Dwayne Haskins Jersey White , who suffered a pulmonary embolism in June.If Okung doesn’t play for the rest of the season or beyond, and if Washington would be willing to offer Gordon a contract he’d accept, the problem is solved for everyone.If it’s something that the two franchises should at least consider. It solves a mutual problem, and it addresses a need for each team.Which of course means it will never happen.
