For the 1937 season the Rams moved into the NFL, and Pincura went with them. Even though the NFL confederation gave the membership to the same team owner, this NFL franchise officially became a detach entity because only four players of the team joined the NFL that was newly launched. No personnel of the team joined the NFL league. The four players were Mike Sebastian, Harry Mattos, Bud Cooper and Stan Pincura.[1] Stan played for the Cleveland Rams for his entire two-year career.
