NFL bans all but clear bags from stadiums

   Fans heading to the Edward Jones Dome for a Rams game this season, will need leave their usual purses, backpacks and diaper bags at home.  That's because the National Football League has ban all but clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags inside stadiums for the 2013-2014 football season.  

   The bags can't be bigger than 12x6x12 inches.  NFL approved tote bags will be sold in team stores and on-line, but a one-gallon freezer bag will also be accepted.  And fans can still take in their palm-sized clutch purses.  

   NFL officials say they changed the rules to improve security after the Boston Marathon bombings.

   More information about the new policy can be found on the NFL's website

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have selected Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree with the 30th overall pick in the NFL draft and their second in the first round.

   Ogletree likely fills a starting vacancy at outside linebacker.

   Earlier in the evening, the Rams got help for quarterback Sam Bradford, trading up eight spots with Buffalo and taking West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin with the eighth overall selection in the NFL draft.

   The Bills also got the Rams' second- and seventh-round picks in the deal.

   The 5-8, 172-pound Austin was considered the best overall wide receiver in the draft.

   The 6-3, 242-pound Ogletree left Georgia after his junior season when he totaled 111 tackles in 10 games, all but one of them starts. Ogletree was suspended the first four games last season and had a DUI arrest a week before the combine.
