Aldon Smith involved in weekend incident

TMZ reported on Monday afternoon that Smith was interviewed regarding an early Saturday morning incident where police were called to a home in San Francisco. According to an NFL Network report, Smith was "on track" to be reinstated at that time.

Smith has not been arrested.

Aldon Smith might be all done in Oakland. He was given a full year for violating the National Football League policy on substance abuse, which had several incidents of during his career. "I don't know how to fix it in society but I know we can't have it on our team".

While it's possible nothing could come from this domestic incident - time will tell in that regard - it isn't a good look for someone hoping to get reinstated by the National Football League this spring.

Raiders owner Mark Davis has taken a strong stance against cases of domestic violence, saying the team has a "zero-tolerance" policy.


Smith filed for reinstatement on October 3 before meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell.

Smith has had several run-ins with police since he was drafted by the 49ers back in 2011. The final straw was a DUI, hit and run and vandalism charges in 2015.

He last played in 2015 season when he had 28 tackles and 3.5 sacks in nine games for the Raiders.

Going in to the 2016 season, Smith signed a two-year contract worth $11.5 million but has yet to collect on any of it while under banishment.
