NFL Minor Leagues: What Needs to Be Done to Help Develop Talent in the NFL

National Basketball Association.

Major League Baseball.

National Hockey League.

What do these entities have that the National Football League doesn't? A minor-league system to help develop prospects and players.

The NFL at one time did have an offseason program called World League/NFL Europe/NFL Europa that allowed players who were fringe-roster types the shot to go and get some real game-time experience. Sometimes, even draft picks would be sent over after their rookie seasons sitting on the bench. 

However, there is still not a true NFL minor-league system that has ever been in place. If the NFL wants to be a truly financially productive entity, they would look into a farm system that would allow call-ups and a season that ran very similar to baseball's minor leagues.

This slideshow will explore the idea of what would be considered an intelligent solution for an NFL developmental league.
