Defensive Aldon Smith received NFL conditional approval yesterday to allow him to play this season for the Cowboys. The former Missouri and Raytown High star has not appeared in a game since 2015.
He has struggled with alcohol abuse and legal issues, including domestic abuse. The Cowboys signed Smith to a one-year four-million dollar contract in March. He logged 47-and-a-half sacks in five seasons with the 49ers and Raiders before multiple-suspensions sacked him.
Smith played two seasons at Mizzou, registering a total of 14.5 sacks in just 24 college games. As a freshman he had 64 tackles and 11.5 sacks.
