Even some of the Washington Redskins' biggest legends want the team to change its name.

As the controversy over the name, which is offensive to many Native Americans, continues with owner Dan Snyder refusing to budge, Art Monk and Darrell Green spoke out on local radio station WTOP, saying it might be time to let go.

"[If] Native Americans feel like Redskins or the Chiefs or [another] name is offensive to them, then who are we to say to them 'No, it's not'?" said Monk, who helped lead the 'Skins to three Super Bowls during his tenure there.

Added Green, who also chalked up three Super Bowl wins:

"It deserves and warrants conversation because somebody is saying, 'Hey, this offends me.'"

Green said he'd also want to avoid future court battles over the name.

"Unfortunately in this country, conversations mean legal, dollars, suits," he said.

Earlier this year, members of Congress sent NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a letter urging him to change the team's name. Washington D.C.'s mayor also urged considering a more politically correct name earlier this year.

Snyder, one of the more contentious owners in football, has shown no signs of relenting.
