Cowboys say suspended DE Smith has met with Goodell

Defensive end Aldon Smith met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and is waiting for a decision about his indefinite suspension, according to the Dallas Cowboys’ Stephen Jones.Out of the league since 2015 due to a series of arrests and off-field issues, Smith signed a one-year deal with Dallas last month worth up to a reported $4 million.Jones, the Cowboys’ executive vice president and director of player personnel, told the Pro Football Talk PM podcast Friday that Smith has met with Goodell and is “waiting to hear back.”The Cowboys are also waiting to hear about a possible reinstatement for defensive end Randy Gregory, who was suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy and hasn’t played since 2018.”We’re not sure when we’ll hear something,” Jones said. “Obviously, the league is looking out for their best interest. As men off the field and certainly that’s what’s first and foremost and the priority is how they’re coming off the field.”If ultimately they get to a point which we think they can that Roger (Goodell) feels like they can come back to work and play football and that’s in their best interest in addition to what they need off the field, then certainly we’ll welcome them back and go to work.”Smith, 30, was selected with the seventh overall pick in the 2011 draft by the San Francisco 49ers. Smith had 14 sacks as a rookie, then added 19.5 in 2012 and was selected first-team All-Pro.However, Smith was arrested on suspicion of DUI in January 2012 and again in September 2013, and he sat out five games in 2013 while going through rehab.He was suspended by the NFL for the first nine games of the 2014 season for violations of the substance-abuse and personal-conduct policies.
