How did they become the Raiders? The franchise was originated in Cleveland in 1936 as a member of the American Football League. In 1937 the team joined the NFL. Principal owner Homer Marshman and his general manager, Damon “Buzz” Wetzel picked the Raiders name because Wetzel had said his favorite football team had always been the Fordham Raiders and Marshman liked the sound of the name. - Pro Football Hall of Fame (Franchise nicknames, Source)
