Did you know that the Philadelphia Eagles were named after the symbol on the New Deal’s National Recovery Act? Did you know that the New York Jets were almost called the New York Gothams? The Los Angeles Rams were named after the mascot of Fordham University. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to be named after a state, rather than a city.
This article at Mental Floss explains how all the NFL teams got their names. Very interesting, especially on the eve of a new season.
