The New York Yanks American football team started in the National Football League in 1949 after Boston Yanks owner Ted Collins requested the league to fold his Boston team and give him a new one in New York Citymarker. Collins' new team began operations as the New York Bulldogs and played at the Polo Groundsmarker. In 1950, they changed their name to the New York Yanks and moved to Yankee Stadiummarker. The team also benefited by receiving many top players from the New York Yankees after the All-America Football Conference folded. The Yanks finished the 1950 NFL season with a winning record, however the team collapsed back to a single victory in 1951.

The franchise was reported to have been "sold back" to the league following the 1951 season, but it is more likely the franchise was revoked by the league and canceled by the NFL. A group in Texasmarker bought the rights to the franchise, whereupon the team was resurrected as the Dallas Texans for 1952. For the 1953 season, what remained of the Dallas Texans organization was awarded to the city of Baltimoremarker to form the Baltimore Colts.
