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

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

Smith entered a guilty plea on one felony charge of assault with great bodily injury of victim Christopher Woods stemming from a July 4 incident between Smith and Woods.

Smith allegedly beat and stomped on his sister's boyfriend's head in Pasadena, California, for which he faced up to seven years in prison. The move will save the Raiders $8.5 million in 2018. That was down from a 113.3 rating in his one-plus season under Norton. He has started 41 of the 60 games he has played in during four seasons with the Raiders and is strong against the run.

Smith's two interceptions against the Dallas Cowboys on December 17 led Oakland, which only had five picks on the year.

The Oakland Raiders announced Monday they have released Sean Smith with the cornerback set to go to jail for assault.

Smith hasn't played in a National Football League game since November 2015 and is suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Amerson later signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Carrie is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday and is free to talk to potential suitors this week.

Nonetheless, Smith was able to postpone his court date and played 14 games with the Raiders last season, where he made 32 tackles, two assists, and two interceptions. His 32 tackles previous year matched the fewest since his 2009 rookie season with Miami.
