NFL changes bag restrictions for fans

The NFL is now banning people from bringing almost any bag into football stadiums. The policy allows hand-size purses or freezer bags.

Anything that cannot fit into containers of that size must be carried in a clear tote bag.

The NFL says its a matter of public safety.

"Football is such a national pastime in the United States," said former FBI agent Brad Garrett. "I think it was a reasonable decision."

Fans will have the option to use the clear tote bags if their items cannot fit elsewhere. If they refuse the clear tote, they will be turned away.
