Aldon Smith expects to hear from Roger Goodell soon

San Francisco 49ers' Aldon Smith talks to reporters during an NFL football training camp on Thursday in Santa Clara, Calif. Smith, who was sentenced to three years probation earlier this week following guilty pleas on DUI and weapons charges, said he plans to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as soon as possible to discuss potential punishments from the league.

Aldon Smith, a former Missouri defensive end, was sentenced last Friday to serve three years of probation and to spend 11 days with a work crew after he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and weapons charges. The NFL could dole out punishments for his actions on top of what the criminal justice system decided.
