No surprise, NFL not reinstating Smith this year

At this point, I’m not sure it even matters. Although, I guess the Oakland Raiders could always love to add a dominant pass rusher to a defense that will do its best to keep the team’s collective head above water while they are without their starting quarterback.

But, it’s not going to happen. A source tells PFT that the NFL won’t be allowing Aldon Smith to play football for its league this season.

“NFL will not be reinstating Raiders LB Aldon Smith this season, per source. Commissioner will revisit the case on March 15, 2017,” PFT tweets.

Aldon is certainly being punished, but Aldon certainly did a lot of dumb stuff. He was kind of the beginning of the end for that great San Francisco 49ers defense. Would have been great for the Raiders to get him for a playoff push, but it’s not happening.
