  Raiders | Aldon Smith could be reinstated in March    Sun Feb 5, 03:04 PM

Oakland Raiders LB Aldon Smith is expected to be reinstated from his substance abuse-induced suspension in March 'barring a slip-up', according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Smith met with commissioner Roger Goodell in December, but his reinstatement was deferred for three months.

The Raiders had a disappointing end to 2016 when Derek Carr went down, but they are poised to do bigger and better things in 2017 with some breaks like Smith's uneventful return to play.
