National Football League reinstates Cowboys' Aldon Smith

Dak Prescott Cowboys

The seventh overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, Smith ranked second in the NFL with 19.5 sacks with the San Francisco 49ers in 2012.

Smith, who had been suspended since 2015 for violation of the NFL's personal conduct and substance abuse policies, discussed his reinstatement during an interview with TMZ Sports. Smith was reinstated after meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on a video teleconference last week.

Dallas has had a busy offseason, signing wide receiver Amari Cooper to a five-year, $100m deal, adding a free agent class headlined by kicker Greg Zuerlein, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and quarterback Andy Dalton, and drafting wide receiver CeeDee Lamb in the first round last month.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the only issue between Prescott and the Cowboys at the moment is that Prescott wants a shorter deal than the team is offering.

Smith will earn a $910,000 base salary and $40,625 every time he is on the active game-day roster, totaling $650,000. He had 44 sacks in 50 games during his first four National Football League seasons in San Francisco with defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, now on the Cowboys staff for new head coach Mike McCarthy. By being reinstated, he will receive $90,000 from the Cowboys and can make up to $4 million if he reaches multiple incentives in the contract.

The Texas Republican will replace Richard Grenell, the current acting director who has overseen numerous personnel changes. At the same time, Trump has viewed the intelligence agencies with distrust and ousted or fired multiple officials.

In all, Smith has 47.5 sacks and six forced fumbles in 59 career games (37 starts).

Smith had his first off-the-field incident in 2013, when he was arrested on suspicion of DUI after crashing his truck into a tree in a residential neighborhood in San Jose, California.

In August 2015, Smith was released by the Niners the day after he was arrested on hit-and-run, DUI and vandalism charges.

The then-Oakland Raiders signed Smith to a one-year contract in September 2015, but nine games into that season, the league handed down its one-year ban.
