He has denied the accusation and reportedly is scheduled to be interviewed by investigators next week. The Raiders clearly must be convinced of his innocence based on the information they were able to gather about the incident.
That quickly, Mike Glennon is back to being Mike Glennon. What, exactly, is the plan here? The Bears gave Glennon a significant contract in free agency, presumably to be their starter at quarterback.
At Notre Dame, Smith was a highlight machine on the defensive side of the ball, piling up tackles and routinely making game-changing plays. He was a top-five talent until he was hurt in the team’s bowl game.
The Cowboys were willing to gamble on his talent and the hope of getting him right from a medical standpoint, allowing 2016 to be a medical redshirt season. When he takes the field, we’ll find out if Dallas was wise in its investment.
At the very least, it’s a fantastic story to see Smith get the chance to start pretty soon after what could have been a career-ending injury.
