This post summarizes and transcribes a Five Minutes of Football History edition of The Game Before the Money Podcast. New episodes are released each Tuesday. Other episodes include interviews with NFL legends.
What NFL teams have changed nicknames? The Houston Oilers and Kansas City Chiefs changed names when they moved to new places. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears, and New York Jets all rebranded their team names without moving. The Jets even changed their team colors from black and yellow to green and white (see photos below). The Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders both had official names that changed before they began regular season play.
Learn the history behind those name changes and the original names of the teams. In case you’re wondering what will the Washington Redskins new name be, we will also discuss a couple of possibilities.
