The former NFL quarterback and host of WFAN’s “Boomer and Gio” may have possibly revealed Washington’s new name when he blurted out “the Admirals” during a discussion about the team's pending announcement next month.

“That’s what I believe,” Boomer said.

When he was asked if that is “Boomer reporting” he replied, “I’m reporting it’s the Admirals,” before taking a bit of a softer stance.

“No, I’m not breaking this story,” he said.

The Washington Football Team said on Tuesday that it would reveal its new name with an announcement on Feb. 2.

Later in the show, Boomer was asked if this was going to ruffle any feathers by spoiling the announcement, but again he was clear that he was not reporting it as fact just yet.

“We’ll wait and see,” he said. “We’ll see if I’m right.”
