The problem with this is, that a Baseball player's shelf life is far greater than a football player's. There's no problem with Jay bruce spending 4 years in the minors being seasoned because he can still have a 15-20 year MLB career.

Also, football players are far more game ready when drafted than are Baseball players, so there is less need for a farm system. basketball players even more 'game ready' and hence no farm system in basketball.

Because of the number of players necessary to field a full team, it'd be impractical to have multiple minor league divisions. However, installing a feeder system wouldn't be a bad idea. It'd provide employment for young mid and lower round draftees that might have been cut otherwise, undrafted free agents and veterans recovering from injuries.

It would also give the NFL an additional opportunity to expand the game. I could definitely see them installing NFL B League (Or whatever they call it) teams in Los Angeles, Mexico City and Toronto.

I'd agree that a good start to this would be to create a feeder team for an entire division, and have the league start with 8 teams. They could expand from there.

Here's how I'd do it.

AFC South: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
AFC North: Toronto, Canada
AFC East: Richmond, Virginia
AFC West: Los Vegas, Nevada

NFC South: Birmingham, Alabama
NFC North: Des Moines, Iowa
NFC East: Trenton, New Jersey
NFC West: Los Angeles, California

Fixed it, there is more people there and probably a better market

I think Piscataway, NJ would be a lively spot for the AFC East and DeKalb, Illinois for the NFC North
Regular season? Since when? They used too
