Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News

Smith is expected to miss at least one game due to a suspension to begin the 2014 season. He pleaded no contest to DUI and three felony weapons charges, and his sentencing is scheduled for July 25th. It could be a lengthy ban for Smith, but at this time it's unclear just how many games the league is going to suspended the talented pass-rusher.


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.

49ers | Aldon Smith and Roger Goodell could meet soon (Thu Jul 24, 01:08 AM) - San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith is expected to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in the near future, which likely would lead to a decision on any discipline for Smith.

Our View: Smith is very likely to be suspended for multiple games. The 49ers defense should be without him and Navorro Bowman to start the season, which makes them a less attractive D/ST play and more attractive matchup - at least one to not automatically avoid until the defense is full strength.

49ers | Aldon Smith sentenced (Fri Jul 18, 05:36 PM) - San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith was sentenced to 12 days in jail for vehicle charges Friday, July 18.

Our View: Smith is not actually going to serve any jail time. He can serve the time in a work release program, and he won't miss any playing time. Smith still faces discipline from the NFL for his off-field transgressions.
