Former 49ers LB Aldon Smith under investigation for domestic incident

Feb 13, 2017 at 3:08 PM--


Linebacker Aldon Smith had the making of an all-time great NFL pass rusher when the San Francisco 49ers drafted him with the seventh overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft. In August of 2015, after several incidents that include a shooting at a 2012 party at his house, a DUI, and yelling "bomb" at Los Angeles International Airport, Smith was released from the team.

According to TMZ, Smith is currently being investigated for a domestic incident that occurred in San Francisco. "Police interviewed Smith and the alleged victim and took a report. The case is under 'active investigation,'" reports TMZ. No arrests have been made.

Following his release from the 49ers, he caught on with the Oakland Raiders, signing a one-year deal with the team in 2015. The NFL went on to issue Smith a one-year suspension due to the hit-and-run in August of 2015 that led to his release from the 49ers. Assuming he stayed out of trouble, Smith could have been reinstated into the NFL in March. An incident like this, if true, could potentially derail his NFL career.

Smith was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012. He has 47.5 career sacks.

Current, former 49ers react to Jets hiring Robert Saleh as head coach

After a two-day interview this week, now-former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh landed the head-coaching job with the New York Jets. It wasn't too long ago that many expected Saleh to be the frontrunner for the Detroit Lions vacancy. Filling that role didn't happen, but there was no doubt that Saleh was likely on his way out of San Francisco. "I don't know what's wrong with people if they don't hire him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier this month. "I mean, he's as good as you can get, and he knows more about football, all three phases, and he's going to hire the best staff, knows about players, he knows what they're talking about, who doesn't know what they're talking about, and he also knows how to deal with people."

The San Francisco 49ers lost VP of player personnel Martin Mayhew, who left to become the general manager in Washington. The 49ers' general manager, John Lynch, could be looking to Washington to find some additional help within his own front office and to replace Mayhew, who was considered one of his top lieutenants. Chris Russell of Sports Illustrated told 106.7 The Fan in the Washington D.C. area that the 49ers are among the teams expressing interest in Washington Football Team VP of player personnel Kyle Smith (h/t to Patrick Tulini), who has been with the organization for 10 years and oversaw the team's most recent drafts. "I've heard Washington would not stand in their way," Russell told 106.7 The Fan

The 49ers Must Pursue Deshaun Watson

The smoke that began rising on Twitter earlier this week about Deshaun Watson being unhappy in Houston has consistently gotten thicker as the week has progressed. Typically, where there's smoke, there's fire. The 49ers absolutely must pursue all avenues available to them to bring Watson to Santa Clara. He would instantly transform this 49ers squad into a perennial Super Bowl contender. Watson finished the 2020 season as the second-highest rated passer in the league behind likely MVP Aaron Rodgers. He accomplished this on a team that was relatively bereft of talent on the offensive side of the ball, and was mired in a terrible coaching situation (Bill O'Brien was fired after four straight losses to start the season). Despite the dysfunction, Watson still led the
