Cowboys’ Aldon Smith reinstated by NFL

Aldon Smith

The NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, has officially reinstated Cowboys defensive end Aldon Smith. He has been serving suspensions since his last game with the Oakland Raiders, in 2015. Smith signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys in April 2020, but was not eligible to participate in any NFL activities until he was reinstated today.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

A former first round pick and Pro Bowler, Smith was a part of the San Francisco 49ers team that made the Super Bowl in 2012.

He has been charged with a hit and run, multiple DUIs, vandalism and has been a part of a domestic violence investigation. The NFL has kept him out of the league since his only season as a Raider in 2015. Some of the above issues have kept him from being reinstated since then.

He will be able to immediately take part in the Cowboys’ offseason activities. These activities have been relegated to mostly virtual meetings due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Following the offseason, he will be allowed to play for Dallas in any capacity they so choose.
