    Make Your Expansion Team

    So what happens when the NFL wants to add a new team to the league? Well alot of things, but mainly the NFL gives that team the 1st overall pick and then allows the team to select 30 players from other NFL teams or up to X amount in salary. Each team offers 5 players from their squad that the expansion team can choose from. If a player is chosen from one team, that team can then withdraw one other player and the expansion team could choose a 2nd player from that team (the 3 remaining players) as well (Kickers and Punters are not included). So basically, look at the 5 players you feel each team would be willing to give up and choose 30 players and then whoever you would pick with the 1st overall pick. Give your team a name, city, coach, and team colors if you please.

    I realize this is gonna be a tiresome task, but if you got downtime, go for it.

    Re: Make Your Expansion Team

    first, there won't be an expansion team, as that would screw the entire league structure and scheduling system.
    However, I'll play

    Iqaluit Saskwatches
    Iqaluit Nunavut, Canada
    Coach Steve Mariucci
    Ice Blue and light brown

    1st overall: Suh

    I'd have to think about the roster, it would be tough to say who the best of hte worst are.

    Clearly we wouldn't add another I'm not a dumbass. But I'm just having this as a little game or what have you. Good luck. Its alot easier for the NBA.

    I will put some time into this and make a damn good team. Might be kind of fun. Also, will learn about the rosters of other teams besides the Vikings.

    This is a very good idea. When I have the time, I'll get to it, as well.

    Re:Make Your Expansion Team

    Is the information readily available for the more recent expansion teams and how they put their teams together? Texans, bucs (ok, not recent to some of you)...would be interesting to read up on that, although I doubt there is a comprehensive site out there that lays it all out. Many here could come up with a plan, but it would take a long time to do on your own, I prefer doing something like that with a staff...like reality.

    The Ohio Ohioans

    They all have police records a mile long and regularly miss games for DUI and battery hearings.

    Oh wait, the Bengals already exist.

    That is some major work. Do I get paid?
