New bag rules for NFL stadiums

Aug 23, 2013 at 7:45 AM--


If you normally take in a bag to carry your belongings while at Candlestick Park, you may want to become more familiar with the new rules put into place for this season by the NFL. In an effort to increase the safety throughout all of the league's stadiums and to make it quicker and easier to get into the stadiums, the NFL is now strongly encouraging fans not to bing in any types of bags. However, if you do need to do so, there are new requirements for all bags that pass through the stadium gates.

  • Bags must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and cannot exceed 12" x 6" x 12" in size.
  • You can take in one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags.
  • Small clutch bags that are approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.
  • Exceptions will be made for any medically necessary items after an inspection at the gate designated for this purpose.

All other bags are prohibited from being taken into a stadium.


The NFL has even started to offer official team branded approved bags/backpacks. These products are available on online team stores. For the San Francisco 49ers, there are four products being offered that meet the new-for-2013 public safety bag requirements.

Power rankings in May don't mean a lot, especially when you throw in figuring out how an unproven crop of rookies will impact a team's future success. "The NFL draft and the Power Rankings don't mix," wrote NFL.com contributor Dan Hanzus. That didn't stop him from trying. Hanzus released his latest power rankings, his first since a post-free-agency version in March, and has the San Francisco 49ers jumping up three spots to No. 9. The Niners' draft features the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The team also added two offensive linemen in Aaron Banks and Jaylon Moore, two running backs in Trey Sermon and Elijah



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo understands that competition is part of NFL life

When the San Francisco 49ers traded for Jimmy Garoppolo in 2017, he was seen as the team's quarterback of the future. He was the player who would solidify the position — the most important in sports — for years to come. Three years after signing a long-term deal with the team, the Niners drafted Garoppolo's eventual replacement. San Francisco made Trey Lance of North Dakota State the No. 3 overall pick last week. Garoppolo remains in the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has repeatedly stated that the veteran quarterback will be his starter for Week 1 while leaving the door cracked open for the rookie by saying anything is possible. For now, Garoppolo will be the man under center. However, behind him on the depth chart is

One thing is abundantly clear so far about 49ers rookie cornerback Ambry Thomas -- he's in no danger of falling short on confidence. Thomas, who was selected by the 49ers in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Michigan, spoke with reporters Wednesday, two days before the 49ers kick off their rookie minicamp in Santa Clara. His confidence was on display throughout the media session, particularly after being asked about what he thought regarding the increased cost of living that will come from moving to the Bay Area from the Midwest. "Immediately once I got the phone call (during the draft), I was happy, excited. And I thought about everything," Thomas said. "California, the taxes, and I started thinking about all that -- the cost of

Like any rookie, 49ers offensive lineman and fifth-round pick Jaylon Moore will have his share of challenges as he becomes acclimated to life in the NFL. But fortunately, he's been able to lean on the advice of a handful of NFL veterans as he prepares to make the jump from Western Michigan University to professional football. Moore spoke with reporters on Wednesday as he and other rookies arrived at 49ers facilities for rookie minicamp this weekend (Friday-Saturday). Among the topics Moore discussed was his relationship with NFL offensive linemen and Western Michigan products Chukwuma Okorafor (Pittsburgh Steelers), Taylor Moton (Carolina Panthers), and Luke Juriga (Philadelphia Eagles). Okorafor in particular is someone Moore has learned a lot from after
