Best Answer

The Cowboys have always been the Dallas Cowboys.

Football in Dallas initially saw the Dallas Texans as the first pro football team in Dallas which folded in 1952 after one season. The Hunt family reused the Texans name again starting in 1960 , but eventually left, becoming the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Cowboys joined the NFL in 1960 as the first modern era NFL expansion team.

No. The Cowboys were an expansion team that entered the NFL in 1960. They have always been known as the Cowboys. There have been other professional teams that have played in Dallas. A team called the Dallas Texans played in the NFL in 1952. That team moved to Baltimore the following season and became the Baltimore Colts, who now are the Indianapolis Colts. There also was an team in the American Football League between 1960-1962. That team moved to Kansas City in 1963 and became the Chiefs.
