Aldon Smith: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Smith has been suspended by the NFL for nine games for violating the league's policy and program for substances of abuse and the league's personal conduct policy, the 49ers' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With the 49ers having a Week 8 bye, Smith, who was suspended by the league in the wake of several off-field transgressions, will be eligible to return to action for the 49ers' Week 11 contest against the Giants, per His absence will represent a big blow to the team's pass rush in the meantime, with the report noting that Dan Skuta is in line to replace Smith in the team's starting lineup.
The 49ers are bracing for Smith to be suspended for six-to-eight games, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Smith has dealt with numerous legal issues since entering the league, and while he will likely avoid spending any time in jail, a suspension is almost certainly forthcoming. While his on-field performance has never suffered, he isn't a great source of tackles in IDP leagues, with just 3.7 per game over the last two seasons.
Smith has been sentenced to 12 days in jail stemming from a DUI and weapons charges, NBC Bay Area's Damon Trujillo reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Smith has encountered a host of legal issues over the past year, so facing less than two weeks in jail is a relatively light punishment for the defensive end. There's a good chance he won't end up behind bars, though, as he's able to opt for a work program in lieu of jail. Smith's status is somewhat up in the air heading into next season, as it's almost certain he'll be suspended for at least a portion of the season.
Smith will not have charges filed against him by the Los Angeles City Attorney for his April 13 arrest for making a false bomb threat at LAX airport, reports.

Smith pleaded no contest Wednesday to three felony counts of illegal possession of assault weapons in addition to two misdemeanor DUI cases, the National Football Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Smith is expected to hear word on his sentencing July 25, shortly after 49ers training camp begins. The charges carry a maximum prison sentence of four years and four months, but some sort of probation might be a more likely outcome. Either way, Smith could be looking at a multiple-game suspension this season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, making him a risky investment in single-season leagues with IDPs. In addition to the DUIs and weapons charges, Smith is potentially facing another misdemeanor charge for making a false report of a bomb threat at Los Angeles International Airport back in April.
The 49ers picked up Smith's fifth-year contract option on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Schefter reported earlier that Smith's option wasn't expected to be picked up, but the linebacker is now under contract with the team through the 2015 season. Smith has had his share of off-field issues, but when he's on the field, his ability as a pass rusher is an asset to the 49ers' defense.
Smith is not expected to have his fifth-year contract option picked up by the 49ers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Smith remains under contract through 2014, but the 49ers have until May 3 to pick up his team option through 2015, and it appears as though they have no intention to do so. In the wake of his most recent arrest, uncertainty surrounds the linebacker's availability for the start of 2014, so it's not overly surprising that the team is not inclined to pick up the option.

Smith jumped in his second year with the 49ers to the elite pass-rushing category. His physical traits and agility on the edge make him a "beast" pursuing the quarterback and he is only entering his third year in the league.


Smithís 14-sack rookie season is extremely impressive on the surface, but it becomes even more impressive when you note that he almost always was limited to passing-down work. He didnít start a single game last year and still managed to finish with 37 tackles. Now that heís more than likely headed for a full-time role in 2012, Smith should be able to make a serious run at the 60-tackle mark, and a sack total any less than 12 would be a disappointment. Just realize he might face a brief suspension after an offseason DUI arrest.


Smith will transition from a 4-3 defensive end in college to playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. He's going to be primarily asked to rush the passer.
