Raiders cut Sean Smith; CB to be sentenced to prison for assault

Sean Smith

From a football standpoint, Smith's release will save the Raiders $8.25 million.

Below is Oakland's official news release on Monday's transactions.

Back in August, Sean Smith was arrested on a felony assault charge for an alleged altercation that occurred on Independence Day after he brutally attacked Christopher Woods.

Bolton guides Aussie eves to 8-wkt win over India
In Cricket, Australia women defeated India by 8 wickets in the first One-Day International of the three-match series in Vadodara . The two sides will lock horns yet again at the same venue on Thursday and India will be hoping to play upto their potential.

"He's pleased that [Smith] is admitting guilt, but the sentence is light,"Woods' attorney Jonathan Dennis said of the plea bargain".

Smith was signed as a big-ticket free agent in 2016 to a four-year, $38 million deal.

Smith would have been due $8.25 million in 2018 and possibly $8.75 million in 2019, plus up to $250,000 in workout bonuses, according to Spotrac.

Huawei launches Honor 7C with Snapdragon 450 and 4 GB of RAM
Honor 7X , one of the smartphone's best selling phones in recent times, has come up with a new update - face unlock. Another thing worth noting is that the smartphone ships with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with EMUI 8 .0 on top.

Smith struggled again early in 2017 and was replaced in the starting lineup by TJ Carrie, before finishing the season strong after John Pagano replaced fired defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. for the final six games.

Smith is also facing legal problems. Smith contributed to a lackluster Oakland secondary, and though he intercepted Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott twice in one game, was largely inconsistent on the year.

Oakland is relying on last season's first-round pick, Gareon Conley, to fill the void at cornerback as he returns from a shin injury that limited him to two games. His 32 tackles previous year matched the fewest since his 2009 rookie season with Miami.

Richard Sherman Signs 3-Year Deal With 49ers
