Yes, they have, including the NFL .When the Tennessee Oilers first moved from Houston in 1997, they played their home games in the Liberty Bowl. They moved to Nashville the following year & have played in Nashville ever since.
The other "big" league Memphis team was the Memphis Southmen, which played in its only full season of 1974 (the league disbanded 12 games into the 1975 season).
The Memphis Southmen played in the original World Football League that operated in 1974-75 (not to be confused with the current NFL minor league of the same name).
I might note that the WFL put themselves out of business by raiding the NFL rosters of stars. Some of the stars playing for the Southmen included future Dallas Cowboy Danny White, All-American Lucious Selmon, former Super Bowl star (with Miami) Paul Warfield and NFL alumus John Huarte, among others.
Since then there have been numerous other pro teams, starting with the USFL Memphis Showboats in 1984-1985, the Memphis Maniax of the XFL (that only lasted the 2001 season) and Memphis' current pro team that has been around for 3 years, Arena Football 2's Memphis Xplorers.
You forgot the Mad Dog's that played in the CFL for one season, they died out when the Oilers moved.
Memphis also had an Arena Football League team in 1995 and 1996 called the Memphis Pharaohs. The Pharaohs relocated to Portland, Oregon for three years as the Portland Forest Dragons (1997-99) and then moved to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for the final two years as the Oklahoma Wranglers (2000-2001)
Memphis also had a team called the Memphis Tigers in the American Football League (1934).
Memphis Tigers. Formed in 1927 as "New Bry's Hurricanes" and renamed in 1928, the Tigers were the dominant football team of the South from 1929 to 1932. In 1929, Memphis defeated the Green Bay Packers 20-7 (the Packers eventually won the 1929 NFL championship without losing a league game).
Memphis could also get another team as there are plans on a return of the USFL http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Football_League_%282010%29
Actually a decade earlier, the Memphis team in the now defunct World Football League was called the Memphis Southmen... they were also referred to as the Memphis Grizzlies. http://iqfb.com/world-football-league/memphis-southmen
no, the closest thing that they have to a pro football team is the Iowa barnstormers which is in the afl
No, Oklahoma does not have a pro football team. They do have a semi-pro team called the Yard Dogs. Oklahoma has a new pro basketball team called the Thunder. Also, the Oklahoma City Redhawks is the semi-pro baseball team.

If the college all stars count, then yes the all stars have played a pro team, twice.

Never has happened. The NFL and College Football are 2 different leagues besically, they will never play each other due to expierence problems and scheduling confrontations.
Yes, the 1972 Miami Dolphins.
Indianapolis colts (Football team)
no you can try out for a pro team after college.
Almost half of the country is without a pro football team. Rhode Island, Virginia, Delaware, Montana, Utah, North Dakota, and South Dakota are just a few of the states without a pro football team.
You either have to be drafted or invited to training camp by a pro football team. Typically, you have to play at least 3 years of college football.
