THIS DAY IN NFL HISTORY
May 10, 1970 — THREE NFL TEAMS JOIN AFC
Commissioner Pete Rozelle announced that the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers would join the 10 original AFL teams to form the AFC. Starting in 1970, there would be 13 teams in the American Football Conference and 13 teams in the National Football Conference in the new National Football League.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
DE Shawne Merriman
On the off-season additions to the defense especially DE Mario Williams:
“Mario is not an impactful player, he is dominant, and he’s proven that. Just seeing him walk around you can tell by the guy’s physique, that he’s not something that is just not ordinary walking around here. His football play speaks for itself. Just having him, Kyle (Williams), Marcell (Dareus), Nick (Barnett), and Kirk (Morrison) back, and the secondary guys who are quiet leaders on the team that people do not give a lot of credit to like George Wilson. Just the overall attitude of guys walking around in this building is great.”
