Raiders to release CB Sean Smith

Raiders to release CB Sean Smith

Also Monday morning, The Los Angeles Times reported that Smith, 30, is expected to serve jail time for his role in an altercation that occurred a year ago in Pasadena.

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

Update: For those wondering if Smith is going to be available for teams such as the Chiefs to bolster the secondary, apparently Smith is going to serve the next year in jail after pleading guilty to a felony assault charge.

Smith was arrested last August 17 for allegedly assaulting his sister's then-boyfriend, Christopher Woods, last July 4.

Back in 1992, there were two wide-body Airbus crashes in the nearby mountains, one of Thai International and another of PIA. It is a subsidiary of US-Bangla Group, a United States-Bangladesh joint venture company.

Smith was signed as a big-ticket free agent in 2016 to a four-year, $38 million deal. With AP Photos.The Oakland Raiders released cornerback Sean Smith and right tackle Marshall Newhouse to create more salary cap room heading into free agency.

Smith got benched in his first game with the Raiders after getting burned by New Orleans' Brandin Cooks for a 98-yard touchdown. Their only players under contract at cornerback from last year's active roster are Gareon Conley (their 2017 first-round pick who played in two games as a rookie because of a shin injury), Dexter McDonald and Antonio Hamilton.

In two seasons with Oakland, Smith had 4 total interceptions and 15 passes defended, but the boxscore doesn't tell the full, largely disappointing story. Last season, he lost his starting job to TJ Carrie before becoming one of the Raiders' better defenders in the last month of the season. He also has 47 punt returns for 378 yards and 29 kickoff returns for 701 yards.
