SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke says he expects the NFL's decision on a possible suspension for linebacker Aldon Smith to be announced soon, perhaps even before the preseason begins Aug. 7.
Baalke also said Saturday evening he had not been told of any specific timeline from the league - just that Smith will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell soon and a decision should come shortly after. Smith was sentenced last week to three years of probation and to spend 11 days with a work crew after he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and weapons charges.
Baalke's comments came during a rare and impromptu visit with writers inside the new media workroom at Levi's Stadium. He addressed all team matters - or, in many cases, declined to address - including the contracts of tight end Vernon Davis and training camp holdout Alex Boone.
