The Mammoths had the league’s best attendance, but were relocated to become the Hudson Valley Fort after one year as the league tried to cut travel costs. The only recognizable names on the team’s roster were Alonzo Highsmith Jr. and wide receiver Gerald Ford, who did not go on to become president.

Logo of the National Football League’s latest relocated franchise, the Los Angeles Chargers.

The coach of the original L.A. Chargers was Hall of Famer Sid Gillman, considered a pioneer in the modern passing game. That team had a 10-4 record, won the Western Division title, but lost to the Houston Oilers in the very first AFL Championship game.
