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.

Zarif also remarked that extremism and terrorism spread due to poverty. He will participate and address Pak, Iran trade seminar in Islamabad.

"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.

DeMarco Murray: Visiting Lions
Detroit finished last in the National Football League in rushing in 2017 for the second time in three years. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Sunday night that Murray is set to visit with the Detroit Lions on Monday.

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.
