I would like to Aldon Smith come back this year.
If the team lets him play, it will be a strong indication that he has done well in rehab.
If he does well in rehab, he has a very good chance to get his life in order--and that is important.
If he comes back, he will make the defense better.
He is a young man. If he leaves the stupid decision making behind him, he has a good chance at living a good and decent life.
At some point he will have to pay the pipers. That is just part of life.
I have not written him off.
