So I have been thinking about a way that the NFL could have a minor league system that would keep fans interested as well as make money and this is what I came up with. Each team has players that did not see a lot of playing time for a variety of reasons, be it injury, veteran in front of them, learning system, etc. After the draft, teams will have at or close to 90 players on their roster. What if each team could create a roster from players who did not play a certain % of snaps last year and they could play in an 8 game season or something like that. Younger coaches from each teams staff could be the coaching staff as a develepmental league for coaches as well. The draft could be moved up and with the new slotted system of pay and players signing faster, those new drafted guys could be on the team as well. I realize that injuries could be a concern to my system, but injuries can happen at any time, it is a risk, yes, but the development of guys might be worth it. I think a system like this would work better than say the NFL Europe because fans would still recognize and learn more about "their" guys, not just one or 2 guys scattered on several different teams. Just off the top of my head, guys from the Patriots that would fill out this roster before the draft would be: Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett Shane Vereen, Stevan Ridley Donald Thomas, Kyle Hix, Marcus Cannon Ron Brace, Josh Barrett, Ras-I-Dowling, Marquis Cole, Jermaine Cunningham, Britt Davis. there are more, I just can't think of the names, but hopefully you get my point. Would you watch this type of minor league nfl?
