Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday, April 13, at Los Angeles International Airport after he made a threat that he possessed a bomb, airport police said. Smith reacted in a belligerent manner to a second security screening when he was in a security line. After making the bomb threat, he proceeded to the gate and airport police were summoned. He was detained and subsequently arrested. ‘We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith. As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment,’ general manager Trent Baalke said.
Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle was the team's primary backup this year, and there are people within the organization that believe he can be a 1,400-yard rusher as a lead back.
