This sounds like something that the Oakland Raiders definitely would do! The team has announced they signed Aldon Smith, formerly of the 49ers, despite all his off field trouble.


Despite his off-the-field issues, Smith will be eligible to play Sunday, league sources tell Schefter. The Raiders will consider playing Smith, depending on his conditioning.

The San Francisco 49ers released Smith on Aug. 7 after being arrested the night before on hit-and-run, driving under the influence and vandalism charges. It was his fifth arrest since 2012.

Smith, 25, also spent a month in treatment during the 2013 season. He was suspended for nine games last season.

The expectation around the NFL is that Smith will be suspended again this season, but he is eligible to play until a suspension is announced.
