The NFL informed all 32 clubs it has lifted the prohibition on player tryouts at team facilities effective immediately, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the league banned clubs from bringing in players for a visit, with a recent exception for physicals. Teams will now be allowed to evaluate some free agents on the field before deciding whether to sign them, Pelissero adds.

Incoming free agents must still pass two COVID-19 tests before they are allowed on the field, and clubs will be limited to a maximum of eight tryouts per day, per Tuesday's memo.

The NFL and NFLPA recently approved the league's return-to-play plan, which included a handful of testing protocols and an opt-out deadline that passed on Aug. 6.

A number of notable players remain unsigned less than a month away from the 2020 campaign, including pass-rushers Jadeveon Clowney and Everson Griffen.
