How about trading the Lions for the Chiefs, Colts and Rams?

After the NFL expands to 36 teams by adding Los Angeles, Mexico City, Portland and San Antonio, and then realigning into 6 divisions.

Atlantic Division: Baltimore, New England, New York Giants and Jets, Philadelphia and Washington.

East Division: Buffalo, Carolina, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit and Pittsburgh.

South Division: Atlanta, Jacksonville, Miami, New Orleans, Tampa Bay and Tennessee.

North Division: Chicago, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Minnesota and Saint Louis.

West Division: Arizona, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Mexico City and San Antonio.

Pacific Division: Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.

The regular season could remain at 16 games, with each division playing one other division per season, or a 17th game could be added.

The post-season could be CONTRACTED to 10 teams, with each division winner receiving a 1st round bye, or could be expanded to as many as 16 teams.

The conference setup, AFC and NFC, could be kept or done away with, so that the Bears and Packers, or any 2 teams for that matter, could meet in the Super Bowl.

Other expansion markets to consider: Anaheim, Las Vegas, Oklahoma City and Salt Lake City. A 40-team NFL would be the next progression.
