Aldon Smith is no longer a member of the Seattle Seahawks. The team has reportedly released Smith before he has even played a second for them in 2021, per Mike Garofolo of NFL Network.


The 31-year-old turned himself in back in April after a warrant was issued for his arrest on allegations of second degree battery in the New Orleans.

The alleged battery occurred on Saturday, April 17, at the French Press Coffee House in Chalmette, Louisiana. The Seahawks were aware of the allegations at the time and issued a statement on the issue. After turning himself in, Smith was released on bond.

Smith was conditionally reinstated to the league in 2020 after having been sidelined by an indefinite suspension since 2015, joining the Dallas Cowboys on a one-year deal. He and the Cowboys parted ways this offseason and the former All-Pro went on to sign a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks in mid-April — only days ahead of the aforementioned arrest warrant being issued.

Details of the encounter in question have not been revealed, but given his history with the league, the Seahawks have decided to part ways.
