Welcome to the Raiders Aldon Smith. Say what you’d like about the Raiders and Smith but there is really nothing to lose here. Smith gets a 2nd chance to revive a career which started on fire but off the field issues and slowed the flames. Raiders sign him to a perfect contract where if he plays and performs, he gets paid. If he doesn’t play, no money loss. I believe guys like Aldon Smith catch a bad rap for there issues off the field. Yes, he’s had his share of tough times but I don’t believe it’s done with ill-will like some other guys who have made mistakes off the field. I cannot fail to mention that this is an old-school Raiders move. As of more recent times, the Raiders have a reputation of signing guys who are well past there prime and paying them a ton of cash. This is the total opposite, a move the championship Raiders of old would make. Not only that, can you imagine Khalil Mack and Aldon Smith wrecking QB’s all season long for the next decade? That of course is only if Smith keeps himself in line, if not, Mack & Smith will only rack up the sacks together on Madden. Most people will hate on the move, let’s not forget we are talking about the Raiders here. Me? I’m a fan of the move and wish Smith nothing but the best as he attempts to continue his career as a Raider and his journey to be a better man. I believe in giving 2nd chances, so here’s to you Aldon! Cheers!
