Aldon Smith has been banished from the NFL for some time now. It seems his indefinite suspension has an end date.

The Raiders edge rusher will be reinstated in March if he remains compliant with the substance abuse policy, the NFL Netwotk reported on Sunday morning.

Smith was banished under as a repeat offender of the NFLs substance abuse on Nov. 15, 2015, and hasnt been with his team since. He missed the entire 2016 season, though the team hoped he would return to help their playoff push.

That didnt occur. Smith applied for reinstatement in October and was eligible for it on Nov. 17, but the NFL didnt rule on it and ultimately tabled one until March 2017.

Head coach Jack Del Rio wasnt happy with that decision.
