The NFL has told their teams to resume normal football operations in a memo released Thursday. In this memo the league allows teams to resume voluntary workouts at team facilities. This allows normal contact between coaches and players in order to go over the playbook and start bringing the newly drafted rookies into the fold.
The guidelines for free agency and trades will be given to each team by the league within the next few days in another memo. That memo will also specify the timing of the league year.
According to the memo issued by the NFL today...
'Clubs are free to contact players immediately to advise them of the hours that the facility will be open for their use, to schedule medical and rehabilitation activity, and to arrange meetings with coaches or related activity, such as film study or classroom work,''
NFL attorneys have informed the clubs that the league year must begin or the NFL wiould risk being in breech of the court order issued by Judge Susan Nelson.
Let the chaos commence, it will be glorious.
