That would be the best thing for them to do.
Expanding the NFL to Europe and other parts of the world by staging games there isn't necessary. The old saying is, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The NFL is a billion dollar industry and is the most watched sport in America, so why change it?
As for a minor league, they should keep the same names of the original NFL teams (The Jr./Minor 49ers, etc) and hold games in the same stadium in the off season. I think if the NFL were to support and promote a minor league of undrafted/released players, it can become very popular and profitable in the future.
