The NFL has issued guidelines advising clubs how to operate with the lockout lifted and no collective bargaining agreement in place.

Not every issue was addressed.

A plan for player transactions such as trades and free-agent signings and details about the 2011 league business calendar is expected to be released Friday.

In the meantime, here are the bullet points of what's in place beginning 8 a.m. Friday:
  • Players are allowed to use team facilities.
  • Teams can issue playbooks, game film and other such materials to players.
  • Coaches may meet with players for the purpose of discussing those materials and any offseason workout programs.
  • Voluntary and mandatory workout programs such as minicamps, rookie camps and organized team activities may commence subject to rules in the previous CBA.
  • League counseling programs for substance abuse and performance-enhancing drugs will resume.
