Aldon Smith signed with the Raiders on Friday, certainly not a lot of time to get acquainted with a new system and team, let alone get in game shape. With a suspension inevitable for Smith, the Raiders want to get their new prize on the field as soon as possible, and they will do just that.

According to reports (Ian Rappaport/NFL Network), Smith will see the field today and play around 20 snaps or so. Outside linebacker is not too difficult to learn when you are playing a strictly rush the passer role (exactly what Smith will do) compared to quarterback or offensive line, which is much more in-depth. That being said, it is unclear how effective he will be without practicing on a football field for the entirety of Training Camp. The Raiders host the Bengals at 4pm EST so we will all find out then, what exactly Smith’s role will be.
