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.

Does anyone remember way back to when Jimmy Garoppolo became the NFL's highest-paid quarterback? Yes, you have to look all the way back to 2018 — you know, two years and some change — to when the San Francisco 49ers quarterback inked a then-record five-year deal with up to $137.5 million. What a bargain. That's not what some thought when the deal was signed. At the time, it seemed like a lot of money for a player who had started just seven games. Of course, he had won each of them. Since then, 10 quarterbacks have leaped past Garoppolo when it comes to an average annual salary. The most recent is the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Kansas City Chiefs

George Kittle's 2020 salary could provide incentive to finalize deal sooner rather than later

San Francisco 49ers fans are growing increasingly tired of a lack of significant news on the George Kittle front — specifically when it comes to his new contract. During a typical offseason, a new deal would likely be done, and the All-Pro tight end would be locked up for the foreseeable future. This isn't a typical offseason, and these aren't typical times. That has made things increasingly difficult and is likely the cause of the contract delay. There is no telling how next year's salary cap will look. It wasn't too long ago that everyone was sure the cap would jump significantly, thanks to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and impending television deals. COVID-19 changed all of that. While the NFL is pushing forward as if
