So we are looking at paying college athletes for using their image or being an outstanding athlete instead of just providing them with a free college education and stipends for living expenses. Instead of going down this path, it would make much more sense for the NFL to set up a minor league pro system that would take kids out of high school and pay them to play and develop them into pro athletes. This is not uncommon as it is offered in other sports. College football has been corrupted by all the money in it and it would only get worse when paying athletes for attending school Let's return it back to what it should be and make it truly for student athletes. If you want money or don't want to get an education, go to the minor league. If you want a free education, go to college and maybe turn pro if you develop into an NFL calibre player.
