    Aldon Smith is getting another chance to play in the NFL.

    The former 49ers linebacker signed a one-year deal with the Raiders, an NFL source confirmed to CSNBayArea.com.

    The 49ers released Smith back on Aug. 7 after he was arrested on Aug. 6 for alleged hit and run, DUI and vandalism.

    Despite his problems with the law, Smith is reportedly eligible to play immediately for the Raiders.

    The news of Smith’s signing came only hours before the Santa Clara County district attorney announced misdemeanor charges have been filed against him.
