NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith sent a memo to players Thursday detailing the state of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations with the league.

In the memo, Smith notes some tentative agreements between the two sides on issues including revenue to players, increases in minimum salaries, reduction of contact during training camp practices, decreases in fines for on-field contact and modifications to the league's drug policy. But Smith also notes that "the major issues separating us are significant enough that we cannot recommend to our membership that we should accept a deal in this state at this time."

Pelissero reports that the "major issues" the memo outlines include max revenue split, minimum cash spending requirements, continuation of the league's Legacy Fund and removing the funding rule as a barrier to guaranteed contracts.
