They tried to make Aldon Smith go to rehab and he said…quite possibly. It looks like he might just do that. On the Fox NFL pregame show Jay Glazer reported that the San Francisco 49ers Aldon Smith could enter rehab this week after being arrested on suspicion of DUI early Friday morning: “Those close to Aldon Smith are talking to him about entering a rehab facility as early as this week. I don’t think I ever remember a time when an NFL player during the season actually entered rehab. This has nothing to do with the punishment that the NFL will hand down,” Glazer said of Aldon Smith. The is Smith’s second DUI, in which he was also charged with marijuana possession, and reportedly blew a .15, close to double the legal limit of .08. Here’s a pic of Aldon Smith in better days, sacking Illini QB Nate Scheelhaase during his college football days at Mizzou. Continued Glazer on Niners LB Aldon Smith: “This is concern for people inside the 49ers and those close to him. They think he needs treatment. He needs some help so if he goes into rehab, if he accepts this and goes this week obviously that means he could miss some significant time but right now they’re looking at him and saying, we’re not dealing with Aldon Smith the player. We’re dealing with Aldon Smith the person and the person needs some help. Again, they’re going to push for rehab as early as this week.” Paul M.
