Stop us if youve heard this before: Former 49ers and Raiders pass-rusher Aldon Smith is relisting his San Jose mansion.
According to Realtor.com, Smith is asking $3,475,000 for the 3,400 square-foot residence set on 9.78 acres. The phrase follow the bouncing ball comes to mind.
Smith bought the estate for $1.75 million in 2012, the year he earned First-Team All-Pro honors for his monster season with the 49ers 19.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception. Even before that standout season Smith began a pattern of troublesome behavior that resulted in a nine-game NFL suspension and his release from the 49ers on Aug. 7, 2015.
The Raiders signed Smith on Sept. 11, 2015. That year, Smith listed his mansion for $3 million, according to Realtor.com. Smiths legal troubles mounted, however, and after his involvement in a domestic dispute in March the Raiders released him. A couple weeks before that incident, Smith had appeared before a judge asking relief from his $9,007-per-month child support and claiming he had received no income since November 2015.
In April the Los Angeles Times reported that he relisted the 7-bedroom, 6-bathroom mansion, cutting the asking price to $2.5 million.
The latest relisting has jacked up the asking price to $3.475 million.
This property is literally a castle on the hill in South San Jose with million-dollar views, listing agent Jacklyn OConnor Friedland told Realtor.com. The quality in construction and craftsmanship, top-of-the-line materials, layout, design, and amenities make this one of the most amazing properties available in San Jose.
The amenities include a pool and spa and a 1,200 square-foot guest house.
Smith, 28, has been out of the public eye since mid-April when he was transferred to an inpatient substance abuse center somewhere in California.
