Aldon Smith Needs Meeting With Goodell To Be Reinstated


After being banned from the NFL for substance abuse, Oakland Raiders pass rusher Aldon Smith is eligible for reinstatement. As a matter of fact, he’s been eligible for reinstatement since November 17. Smith extended his rehab an extra 60 days and he’s completed all of his meetings except for one.

With no signs of a meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell on the horizon, it looks very unlikely that Smith will return this season.
