Default When should the NFL expand again?

This offseason could be an outlier but, if it's not, it would appear the owners have arrived at some sort of favorable equilibrium where it is no longer necessary to overpay older or problem players that were good once. Lots of upper-shelf talents are sitting around without jobs right now. For example:

Charles Woodson
James Harrison
Karlos Dansby
Dwight Freeney
Brandon Moore
Brian Urlacher
Eric Winston
John Abraham
Tyson Clabo
Shaun Phillips
Kerry Rhodes
Antoine Winfield
Bryant McKinnie
Bart Scott
Richard Seymour
Israel Idonije
Ray Edwards

Most of these guys are still young or talented enough that they could still contribute to a roster, but owners would rather pay a rookie 20% of the money and get 80% of the production. I don't blame them, but especially once the new TV contacts start and the money gets beyond ridiculous, will it make sense to add two new teams?

Or would that still stretch the talent too thin and water down the NFL product? What other reasons are there to not expand? If they did add 2 teams, what cities would be the best or most-obvious landing spots?
