WASHINGTON — Riding the high of a surprise postseason appearance, the Redskins will announce plans for their new stadium, according to a report by Chris Myers.

As Myers notes, the location of the new stadium is still to be determined. FedExField is generally considered one of the worst stadium experiences in the NFL, and Washington fans often bemoan the trip to Landover to see a game.

There is often a clamor to have the Redskins return to D.C. — they are the Washington Redskins, after all — but bringing the team back to the nation’s capital will prove difficult as long as the moniker remains.

Whatever the plans are, the hope is the new stadium is more sightly than the current one, and more accessible, as well.

The Verizon Center, where the Wizards, Capitals and Mystics play, is mere feet from the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro stop. Nationals Park is an easy walk from the Navy Yard Metro stop. Even RFK Stadium, where D.C. United currently plays and the Redskins used to play, is a short walk from the Stadium Armory Metro stop.

A more convenient location, as well as a more fan-friendly experience, would likely draw better attendance to Redskins home games.
