DE Smith makes roster despite Pro Bowl DL talent

Aldon Smith suspended 9 games for violating personal conduct policy - Niners Nation

Smith's suspension is the first since the league announced its new policy regarding domestic violence and sexual assault. The new policy came in response to the commissioner's poor handling of Ray Rice's suspension for domestic violence. The new policy is intended to cover assault, battery, domestic violence, and sexual assault. The commissioner mentioned in the letter that he wanted stricter punishment for DUIs, but he blames the NFLPA for that not getting done.

Undrafted rookie pass rusher Ethan Westbrooks made an even stronger case than Sam, harassing quarterbacks more frequently and leaving many to wonder how 32 teams missed the West Texas A&M product in the draft.
