Could the NFL start a minor league system????????

Posted on: October 24, 2009 6:01 pm
I was thinking that maybe the NFL could start a minor league system to develop talent. Is it possible to do this with the economy in its current situation. I believe the talent is there, look at all the college players today. There is plenty of players getting drafted from division 2 and 3 that have the talent, it just needs to be nurtured. Setup rules similar to MLB, create a disabled list for players with small injuries, drop active rosters to 45 players, create an additional 25 player recall roster for players to be recalled if needed. The biggest question is if it financially possible. I think the fans will be the winners. With the popularity the the NFL rising in other countries, thast would allow NFL teams to scout overseas for talent, and properly devlope them. I believe some NFL teams do not sign players like that because the current system will not allow them the time to develope, they only get into pre-season games and then cut, if there lucky a practice squad but that is not playing in a game.
