The first negotiations for a merger between the All America Football Conference and the National Football League called for the merger of the NFL Boston Yanks and the AAFC New York Yankees, to play at Yankee Stadium for 1949. As part of the agreement, the AAFC Brooklyn Dodgers would be eliminated. This deal was rejected by the A.A.F.C.
 
In January, 1949, the Brooklyn Dodgers folded,  merging with the New York Yankees, the new team to play at Yankee Stadium. Some Dodgers players given to Chicago Rockets who become the Chicago Hornets.
