It's another headache for a player who was not reinstated when first eligible last fall.
The NFL was expected to make a ruling on Smith's reinstatement last week but obviously that didn't happen.
With the shoe on the other foot, I realized those emails were comforting even though I was well aware of the problem.
But I did take time to quickly tap out a response to people who replied to the spam coming from my hijacked account. Because took the time and effort to give me a heads up that I had a problem. I figured these people knew they’d been compromised and I didn’t need to respond.
"When we get to that decision, we’ll certainly announce it." Smith's reinstatement was supposed to be decided weeks ago but Goodell has been dragging his feet.
It's unclear if a decision will be made before the end of the regular season.
