Six-year NFL veteran edge rusher Aldon Smith signed a one-year, contract with the Seattle Seahawks. Smith, a one-time All-Pro, spent the 2020 season with the Dallas Cowboys but has also played for the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers. Mike Garafolo first reported news of the signing.

Aldon Smith had one of the strangest voyages to the football field in 2020. After missing the past four seasons thanks to a combination of substance abuse, hit and run, and domestic violence charges, Smith applied for reinstatement prior to the start of the regular season. The NFL granted his request, and the former first-round pick signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
