The Oakland Raiders re-signed suspended pass-rusher Aldon Smith on Monday. The 26 year old will be eligible to apply for reinstatement in September, 60 days before the one-year anniversary of the suspension.
The No. 7 overall pick of the 2011 draft out of Missouri by the San Francisco 49ers, Smith spent time in rehab in 2013 and served a nine-game suspension in 2014. He was cut by the Niners during training camp last summer after his fifth arrest since coming into the league.
In September, Smith pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run, drunken driving and vandalism, charges that stemmed from the alleged Aug. 6 incident.
