They already do recruit from Europe. Support and feed in infrastructure are very different. The league can already recruit from Europe, as we saw in MoBo and a few less high profile players. But 1 practice squad WR does not equal a sustainable source of draft supply yet. And QB which is a more technical position would be even harder.

They are much better reviving an NFL Europe type league, maybe even partnering teams with NFL teams as a B team type concept.

Even the NBA and NHL which are much much further ahead with non US players are still reliant on US sources for the majority of players
