The Oakland Raiders are the only NFL team to have not had one player arrested in the past three seasons, per Sporting News.

The stat might be hard to believe for the casual fan because Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith is still a part of the organization and the Raiders are synonymous with a bad-boy persona.

Smith was detained by San Francisco police in March for public intoxication, but was never arrested per The Mercury News.

The Raiders boast outstanding leadership from the top down in reigning executive of the year Reggie McKenzie, coach Jack Del Rio, franchise quarterback Derek Carr and reigning defensive player of the year winner defensive Khalil Mack.

There seems to be a direct correlation between Carr arriving in the Easy Bay and Oakland having zero arrests. Moreover, McKenzie and Del Rio’s consistent focus at building a dynasty of their own has seemed to ripple positive results throughout the entire organization.

While the Raider Way may be different than the Patriot Way, don’t be surprised if Oakland is the team to end New England’s historic dynasty.

Currently suspended Oakland Raiders defensive end Aldon Smith went on Instagram Live Saturday to tell his viewers that he believes he will be reinstated by the NFL “soon.”

Despite Smith’s sentiment, fans have to be wary. After all, the last time Smith claimed that he was “back,” he quickly found himself in hot water again.

If Smith does get reinstated, the Raiders’ defensive front would look scary on paper with defensive end Khalil Mack, linebacker Bruce Irvin and defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. along with Smith getting after opposing quarterbacks.

Since making his statements on his live stream, Smith has not made any other public comments regarding his NFL status.

Recorded footage of the live video was not able to be obtained by the time of publication.
