Mediaite reports:

Nike has pulled all of its merchandise for the NFL’s Washington football team from its website, as of Thursday afternoon. The brand’s website shows no results for the team’s gear, and instead tries to re-direct users to other  D.C.-based teams like the NBA’s Washington Wizards.

A search of other NFL teams on the site shows their gear is still being sold on This move comes after FedEx, the named sponsor of Washington’s NFL stadium, asked owner Dan Snyder to change the team’s name earlier in the day.
