Strange video apparently of Aldon Smith emerges

Not many players who are permanently banished from the league with the ability to apply for reinstatement after one year ever get reinstated. Raiders defensive end Aldon Smith seems to be on track to be among the likes of Justin Blackmon and Darryl Washington.

Via CSNBayArea.com, a video has emerged that appears to include Smith, a hand-rolled cigarette, and a conversation regarding whether it’s wise for him to be making such a video for posting on the Internet.

Easy answer: It’s not wise.

It’s still not entirely clear that Smith is the person in the video, but it sure seems that he is. And if Smith is doing things so clearly ill-advised that for the public eye, it’s fair to wonder whether and to what extent he’s doing other ill-advised things not for the public eye when it comes to the specific things he’s supposed to be doing and not be doing in order to satisfy the terms of the plan devised for him by the medical review officer responsible for Smith’s compliance with the substance-abuse policy.

Smith at one point was one of the most dominant young pass rushers in the NFL, after becoming the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft. A string of legal issues and suspensions have left him on the outside looking in, and he may never get back on the inside again.

  1. Was that a Shiatsu foot massager? Considering Smith had a foot injury last year, cool beans, it must be him.

    Nah. I would buy a foot massager from Sharper Image before I bought this. Bogus.

  2. The Raiders signed Bruce Irvin , drafted Shilique Calhoun in the 3rd round, and signed Damontre Moore as a new rehab project. If Smith gets his head straight he’ll be welcomed back but the team obviously isn’t relying on that happening.

  3. People used to debate who the better pass rusher was, Aldon Smith or Von Miller. Too bad a guy with that much talent can’t figure it out.

  4. A person who “may” be AS, rolling a hand made cigarette.
    Is this worth a further investigation?
    A suspension maybe?
    …You gotta be kiddin’…

  5. It would be funny if it was actually nothing more than a hand rolled cigarette and he was having a little fun at the media’s expense…..

  6. “It’s not like I put my name “Aldon Smith” and my social security number 525-55-5335 on the page.”

    At least the female tried a little to talk some sense in the guy. But if it’s truly him, he just doesn’t seem to care.

    On a side note :
    The ending seemed a little fishy to me. Why would he go through the motions of using an alias and not showing his face but say his actual name.

  7. 20 million dollar talent, with a 20 cent brain.

    You see that a lot. People who are talented intellectually often aren’t as gifted physically, while those who are gifted physically often aren’t too bright.

  8. Can’t really blame the Raiders…he brought that with him from the Claranettes

  9. time will tell, but unlike some of the knee jerk reaction comments are pretty funny.Time will tell all…could it be him? yes. Could it have been made 2 to 5 years ago? maybe. Could somebody be pissed at him? maybe….Could he really be this stupid and post this himself with his name….maybe, but I really doubt it, and I hope not.

  10. As a repeat offender for his DUI, he’ll be scheduled to pee in a cup by the end of the week. This will be settled one way or another before the pads go on for the 1st time.

  11. ABC News reporting today the Raiders re-signed Smith today.. Why would the Raiders re-sign Smith with the recently released video of him seemingly drunk and now the matter under investigation by the NFL? Either it’s a bogus video or the Raiders are idiots.

  12. The ending seemed a little fishy to me. Why would he go through the motions of using an alias and not showing his face but say his actual name.

    …………………………..

    Because he’s stupid?…what a fool. It’s his account (under an alias). He thinks he has only 29 followers so it won’t get out….oops, wrong! LOL

    …………………………

    I’ll take door number 2 please, Monty.

  14. I wonder if Aldon Smith realizes that a voice print is as identifiable as a fingerprint…..

    In simple terms, (don’t want to confuse him), if a recording of Aldon Smith voice is compared to the video, and they’re the same voice, it’s Aldon Smith on the video.

    There’s plenty of video of Aldon Smith….. this dude may never play in the NFL again.

    Hope he saved his money……

    Nothing wrong with a lil puff puff give. It hasn’t killed as many people as alcohol or opiates.

    No there is not and I agree totally. BUT when your employer doesn’t allow you to do it don’t do it. If you are already been given a bunch of chances maybe he should stop and think about it.
