I wasn't sure where to post this, but I am an interpreter for a Deaf student who is mainstreamed in a public school. He is the ONLY Deaf student in the entire district. He has LOVE for NFL football, and I would like to be able to "talk" football with him....with signs that other Deaf will understand when he gets to be around them. So, if anyone knows of accepted NFL team sign names...I would surely love it if you could share! (especially the Saints and the Colts since the Super Bowl is coming up!) Thanks so much!

To begin wth "NFL Football" would be 'N-F-L' then the sign for "football".

The specific team names might be fingerspelled after the sign for the location. Thus, this may be "New Orleans" then the sign for "Saints", or there may be an iconic sign for this team as a whole. Same ideas with the "Colts".
