Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Smith's 2014 outlook = bleak. He has a sentencing date July, 25 after pleading no contest to three felony weapons charges. If he avoids incarceration, some form of suspension by the league office is expected*. Smith reached 30 sacks in 27 games, faster than any player in league history (breaking Reggie White's record), but lately he has been in the news for the wrong reasons. He missed more than a month of the 2013 season during a rehab stint after a second DUI, and recently there was a bizarre alleged "joking" bomb threat at LAX airport. Being away from the game might be the best thing for Smith, giving him time to reflect on changes that need to be made in his personal life if he wants to remain with the 49ers and in the NFL long term, and avoid squandering rare athletic gifts and talent. * Smith received a nine game suspension on 4-29-14, and will be eligible to return on 11-10-14. Second year OLB Corey Lemonier is expected to fill in during his absence, but is relatively untested, with 6 solo tackles, 1 sack and 1 FF in 12 games as a rookie. (August 29)

49ers | Aldon Smith suspended (Fri Aug 29, 03:57 PM) - San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith was suspended for the first nine games of 2014 for violating the policy and program for substances of abuse and the personal conduct policy.

Our View: Smith is lucky the suspension isn't longer. The 49ers are now going to move forward without one of the best pass-rushers in the game for a majority of the regular season. They'll now turn to Dan Skuta and Corey Lemonier as linebackers opposite Ahmad Brooks.
