Aldon Smith agrees to 1-year deal with Raiders

Sep 11, 2015 at 9:14 AM--


Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith will stay in the Bay Area. He has agreed to a 1-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.

According to his agent, the deal could be worth up to $8 million with incentives.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area states that the 49ers were open to bringing him back at some point down the road, but it wasn't what the troubled linebacker necessarily wanted.

In August, Smith was booked at Santa Clara County Jail for an alleged hit and run, a DUI (which he denied), and vandalism.

According to a police affidavit of Smith's arrest, an argument led to the 49ers linebacker hitting a neighbor's car - resulting in minor damage.

Smith, who started last season on a nine-game suspension, was released by the 49ers the day after his August arrest, following his release from jail.

The talented 49ers linebacker has had numerous other incidents including a shooting at a 2012 party at his house, another DUI, and yelling 'bomb' at Los Angeles International Airport.

Update:

On the same day as his signing with the Raiders, Smith has been charged with three misdemeanors. They include a DUI with prior conviction and refusal to submit to chemical test, a hit and run with property damage, and vandalism under $400. His arraignment is set for October 6.

49ers add WR DeVonta Smith in latest PFF mock draft

If the San Francisco 49ers don't make a move for a quarterback in this year's draft, many can envision the team going after a cornerback or adding another defensive end. Several of San Francisco's top cornerbacks are scheduled to become free agents. It's a list that includes Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. The 49ers didn't have their top two pass rushers — Nick Bosa or Dee Ford — for most of last season. Bosa is rehabbing an ACL injury, while the status of Ford's back and neck injuries remains unclear. If Ford isn't healthy by April 1, San Francisco will be on the hook for a significant portion of his 2021 salary — $11.6 million — regardless of whether he is on the roster. Rather than target one of these positions,



ESPN's Smith and Kellerman have different QB predictions for the 49ers

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take have different predictions on who will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers during the upcoming season. Kellerman often defends Jimmy Garoppolo against Smith's criticisms, so you might naturally assume that Kellerman would predict that San Francisco would avoid shaking things up. You might also assume that the critical Smith predicts that the 49ers move on from Garoppolo. The opposite is true. Smith envisions San Francisco sticking with Garoppolo while Kellerman has another quarterback in mind to lead head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Me personally, I think it's going to be Jimmy G (as the 49ers' starter)," Smith declared. "That's what I believe. I believe that everybody's been

It's been the better part of a decade since Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick were part of the same quarterback room with the San Francisco 49ers, but Smith still sounds as impressed as ever with what he experienced on and off the field when the two of them were teammates. Smith spoke for almost an hour this week on Kaepernick and a number of other subjects during a guest spot on the 10 Questions With Kyle Brandt Podcast (click here to listen). Smith, who was the starting quarterback for the 49ers when Kaepernick was selected in Round 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft, told Brandt he remembered Kaepernick as a "great dude" who brought an impressive work ethic to the NFL right out of the gate.
