It looks like The E may have a new source for talent: the NFL!

Extra Points: 'Humane' Goodell, NFLPA could send players to WWE

    "Today one of the focuses was the cutdown process as an example," the commissioner said. "How do we make the process more dignified? It is in some cases the last experience a player has with a team or any team in the NFL. So we have to do a better job of doing that in a humane way and a way that will make sure they understand the respect we have for them and the pride we have in what they accomplished.

    "Make sure they understand what they'll be experiencing as they separate from an NFL team and make sure they have the services that are available to them, which we provide and we think can be incredibly valuable to them."

    Jim Ross believes he can help.

    Most of you know Ross as "good ol' J.R," the legendary voice of World Wrestling Entertainment. But, Ross was once the right-hand man of Vince McMahon in WWE talent relations and still helps with the company's developmental talent program today. He also happens to be a huge football fan.

    Ross scheduled a meeting Wednesday with NFL Players Association officials in Washington, D.C., in hopes of carving out a working relationship in which the NFL and NFLPA would encourage outgoing players to look at WWE as a career alternative moving forward.

    "Everybody doesn't make the 53-man roster," Ross told Alex Marvez and Jim Miller and on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Some guys are going to be looking for work, and we've got some job openings."

Don't they have enough trouble finding stuff for their current guys to do? Do they really need to add a gaggle of NFL washouts to their bloated roster?

Finding new ways to add talent is never a bad thing, and WWE would benefit hugely from a partnership with the NFL.

If you took all the former football players who transitioned into wrestling and placed them on the scale, the side with wrestling talent would be far outweighed by the side with dead weight. On the other hand, The Rock and Goldberg probably wouldn't have ended up as wrestlers if their NFL careers had been successful. From a business standpoint, I would guess that either of those guys easily made up for the hundred guys that had to weed through to find them.
