The team plays in Landover, Maryland, at FedEx Field.
The Democratic governor, who is mulling running for president, posted: ''I was asked earlier today and answered that I do believe it is probably time for the Washington Redskins to change their team name.''
''We hope that in every generation we become more understanding of one another & more respectful of the dignity of every individual & culture,'' O'Malley added on his Twitter account.
The Redskins name has been the subject of a sustained campaign by those who consider it to be a racial slur. Redskins' owner Dan Snyder and others associated with the team have long argued that the Redskins name is used with respect and honor and is a source of pride among many Native Americans.
