Justin Smith is currently in his 11th season as a defensive lineman in the NFL. Smith has 40 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and has caused a pair of fumbles. His current teammate and former tiger Aldon Smith has also been
productive this season.

Rookie linebacker Aldon Smith has a team high 7.5 sacks this season, which is second in the NFL for rookies. His former teammate and former tiger Danario Alexander hopes to play against the 49ers on Sunday.

"Aldon's a great guy, he's one of my friends, he's haivng a great year also. I'm excited to see him this week and I'm happy for what he's doing in his rookie season. Aldon is a different breed man. He's tall, long, and lanky, and he was a great basketball player and that translates onto the field. He's a beast out there and I look forward to continue seeing him play and be successful in this league," St. Louis wide receiver Danario Alexander said.
