    I would love to see us go to a 3-4 with Irvin, Mack, smith and bowman.
    I like Mario, vanderdoes and ? At the other end?
    I do think it's time to draft an ot in the first round

    I agree with all of this Megatron. I have been wanting a 3-4 for a couple of years now. I still say our personnel is best suited for the 3-4. If Pagano stays he did run a 3-4 in San Diego so hopefully that is a good sign.

    Smith hasn't played in two years. I'm wondering if the NFL is ever gonna let him play again.

    Aldon Smith's contract has expired. He's through as an Oakland Raider. Goodell made sure of that.

    He would be a cheap signing

    I'm almost certain that's wrong. His contract doesn't start until he starts playing. That's why he hasn't counted against the cap during this time.

    Correct. I'm not going to hold my breath that Goodell ever makes up his mind. At this point I don't even consider him in any of our plans.

    The NFL is like "Who or what is an Aldon Smith?"

    Here's the article that states that Aldon Smith is a free agent:

    This is assuming Irvin and Bowman come back. If they don't, we'l have major holes to fill on an already porous D.

    You may be right, but I'm not 100% sure. This article says that Aldon Smith didn't earn money while he was suspended but that he got credit for the last 2 years despite not being on the team. However, Daryl Washington, who had been suspended for 3 years, was in a similar situation with the Cardinals earlier this year. He signed a 6 year contract with the Cardinals in 2012 and was suspended in 2014. When he was reinstated this year, he was still under contract for 4 years (source).

    I guess we'll see how the it plays out this year. Either way, I don't imagine he'd command a big contract.

    Aldon Smith is not a FA. Since he is suspended he cant occur a year on his contract meaning his contract rolls over to the following year. If he had played this season then yes he would be a FA but since he wasnt on an active roster the minimum games to occur a season(6 games) his contract continues to next year. Same reason why Josh Gordon isnt a unrestricted free agent next year either.

    The article states that his contract expires after the 2017 season. It was written a year ago and clearly indicates that the clock keeps ticking on his contract and that he had already lost a year i.e 2016.
