The Oakland Raiders have re-signed Aldon Smith to a two-year deal, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter and’s Ian Rapoport.

Smith played in nine games for the Raiders last season, recording 3 1/2 sacks. He was suspended for one year in November for a substance abuse violation, and will have to apply for reinstatement to the league.

Smith was involved in an incident last August in which he was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run, driving under the influence and vandalism. Smith signed with the Raiders in September, on the same day he was charged with three misdemeanors. 

The arrest was Smith’s third for drunk driving and his fifth arrest in the last three years.

Smith, who recorded 42 sacks in his first 43 games in the NFL, has faced numerous off-the-field issues. He was suspended nine games in 2014 for violations of the league’s substance abuse and personal conduct policies. He also missed five games in 2013 after voluntarily entering a rehabilitation facility.

In his career, Smith has recorded 47 1/2 sacks, five forced fumbles and one interception in 59 games.
