Will be official in March.

So the NFL just really didn't want him to help the Raiders in their playoff run. Kind of lame. But at least he is reinstated (barring a slip up). Aldon could be huge for this defense. If Aldon from the Niners show up, we will have the most lethal pass rush in the league with Mack.

This can be debated back and forth and will never be proven either way but I don't think it had anything to do with the team he plays for and everything to do with his conduct off the field before and after the suspension.

This will be huge for him. Really hit the ground running in week 1. He's never been a part of our offseason program has he? Don't remember but I think his suspension kept him away from the team unlike Josh Gordon's

This will be his first time participating in off season program with the team, it also could effect how we draft.

Until he does something stupid on video again and yells "I'M NOT ALDON SMITH". Would love to be wrong but I'm totally over this dude.

Agreed. What reason would the NFL have for that?

Wrong quote and he didn't yell anything(but your points are valid) just feel like arguing semantics.

Great news. I'm excited to see what he does after a full off-season, training camp, and four preseason games.

IF Aldon will truly be back we could have a pretty dangerous EDGE group.

I'm still not taking it as a sure thing, but hopefully his past is behind him and we can expect him on the field come September.

Mack, Smith and Irvin would be a really strong group and Calhoun with Cowser could provide enough young depth. Calhoun on roster and Cowser maybe on PS again (I guess he is still eligible for PS).


Mack at LDE, Aldon at RDE with Irvin at SLB could be a pretty stout 4-3under front formation. They could keep the edges against the run and could bring the heat.

We need a quality run killer NT with Latham and Ellis as depth and Mario Edwards at DT with Ward and Autry as depth.

Agreed. He brought it on himself. Happy to have him back.

Great news. But we still need someone to generate interior pass rush.

I wasn't talking about our team specifically, just that the NFL obviously didn't want Aldon apart of the playoffs and a chance to get a ring as part of his punishment. I think it's kind of unfair to suspend a guy One Year and it turns into One and a Half Years. At least phrase the suspension "Minimum One Year".

But it's over now barring any slip ups. Hopefully Aldon can continue to stay out of trouble and be a big contributing factor on us making a Super Bowl run this year.
