The 2015 League Year and Free Agency period begin at 4:00 p.m., New York time.
The NFL officially kicks off the 2015 regular season.
To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into stadiums, NFL teams will implement an NFL policy this year that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums. To read the NFL policy, click here.
The NFL strongly encourages fans to not bring any type of bags. Beginning with preseason games, fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium:
Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.
Fans will continue to be able to enjoy their tailgate activities in the parking lots and to do so with greater safety and the knowledge that their entry into the stadium will be smoother and faster. They also will continue to be able to carry items allowed into the stadium, such as binoculars, cameras, and smart phones.

There will be two bag check locations for Sunday's game located at the North and South entrances of Oracle Arena. There will be a $10 charge for any bag checked. Bag check is controlled and operated by AEG*. A free one gallon plastic bag will be provided to transfer any items permitted into the Coliseum.
*All money collected at bag check goes to the AEG Oakland Community Advisory Board.
Fans whose tickets are scanned (and thus in the stadium) an hour before kickoff will be eligible to win some really cool prizes including field passes, tickets to future games, and Raider Image gift cards.
You have to get in early to be eligible to win - so get in the stadium at least one hour before kickoff and cheer on the Silver and Black. Click here to read the complete list of rules and regulations.

The area between the Emergency Vehicle Lines will allow urgent response teams and law enforcement officers immediate access to high risk situations in the parking lots without delay.While the stadium entities understand this may be seen as an inconvenience to guests tailgating at O.co Coliseum, this adjustment is for your safety, the safety of your guests and families, and the safety of all fans attending events at O.co Coliseum.
