Smith met with commissioner Roger Goodell in December but his reinstatement bid was deferred for another three months.

Smith is currently serving a year-long substance abuse suspension.

Substance abuse issues have derailed Smith's career in recent years but he's still an important pass rusher for the Raiders.

The 27-year-old's contract is up after next season.

Gatpandan did not disclose the nature of the investigation, saying just that Smith "was mentioned in the report." TMZ Sports reported Smith is being investigated for a "domestic incident." Hoping to get reinstated in March, this is a bad look for Smith even if the investigation comes to nothing.
