    that even the very worst of players can turn it around. he's playing some good ball with CIN. he's a reason why CINI's D is pretty good too (Zimmer got some game from him). in the end, granted it took him a while, but he did fix his problems and bounce back.

    it will also be interesting if Kenny bounces back with St. Lou. All in all, if Aldon doesn't go to jail and becomes a FA, I'd love to try and get him.

    I've never understood not wanting a good player because of character concerns, because besides a small distraction (usually the media asking too many questions and blowing things out of proportion) I don't see how it effects the teams play on the field, and the more playmakers the better.

    Take a player like Vontaez Burfict. He had 1st round talent but every team stayed away from him because of "character concerns." Now he's an impact linebacker for the Bengals. Any team could have (and IMO should have) taken a chance on him in the 7th round and they would have had a starting linebacker for years to come.

    If things with the player get out of hand in the locker room, they start questioning the coach and calling him out in front of the team (ala VY), or they get locked up you can always cut them. But there's really no reason to not take a player that can impact your team simply because he's an idiot off the field.

    Character matters... and I don't want to win the Super Bowl with punks and sh*tty people. Although I would prefer it over no Super Bowl. I just don't see how adding a retard like this can be a good idea.

    If Aldon takes a year away from football, seeks help and matures, then by all means I would give him a second chance at the right price.

    He'll get a second chance... it just won't be with us.

    Because *if* it gets that bad, you can lose them via suspension and maybe even picks at some point. From a business standpoint, you fill a team with shitty people, you are going to notice it from a $ standpoint.

    Nobody gave a F%^$ about how much blow Lawrence Taylor put up his nose or how many hookers he choked to an inch of their life. 2 rings. Dominant player. Aldon Smith is in the upper elite category of pass rushers. Would take him. Give him a show where fans can call in and chat.

    Choking hookers and doing blow is still smarter than what Aldon has done.

    Sometimes I agree with this, however, we dont need to go down that road. We have Phillips, Ayers, and Wimbley, thats a solid trio of OLBs. Now if we had no one yea lets bring Smith in, but we do so we wont.

    Yeah we only need guys like Jake. You see how that's working for us so far.

    There's no way he is not suspended for at least 1/2 a season; this is like his 3rd or 4th high profile incident.

    No to mention there's a chance that he could get a federal offense for calling in a bomb threat; which is 3-5 years jail time.
