Aldon Smith: I'm back and nobody can stop me

Aldon Smith: I'm back and nobody can stop me

Aldon Smith last played in an NFL game for the Oakland Raiders on Nov. 15, 2015, having been slapped with an indefinite suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the leagues substance abuse policy.

But a day after the NFL Network reported Smith would be reinstated in March, so long as the pass-rushing outside linebacker had no slip-ups before then, Smith took to social media to announce his presence ... so to speak.

Im back, he said on Instagram Live. And theres nobody who can stop me.

Seemingly answering questions from viewers, Smith added, You already know it. Raider Nation, we got this s---.

As part of his suspension, Smith was barred from the Raiders' facility as well as contact with coaches. Should he indeed be reinstated next month, he would conceivably be available to rejoin the team for the start of its offseason program, which is scheduled to begin on April 17.

Rookie minicamp is scheduled for May 5-7 with OTAs on May 23-25, May 30-June 1 and June 5-8 with mandatory minicamp June 13-15.

Smith, who has 47.5 sacks in 59 career games, rejoining the Raiders would also seemingly give them a much-needed boost in their pass rush after Oakland finished last in the NFL with 25 sacks. This despite the presence of NFL Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack, who had 11 sacks, and Bruce Irvin, who had seven sacks.
