Raiders release OT Marshall Newhouse, CB Sean Smith

Raiders release OT Marshall Newhouse, CB Sean Smith

In July, he was accused of stomping on a man's head and charged with felony assault for his alleged involvement. Fenno reports Smith will plead guilty to the charge and accept one year of jail time along with three years of probation.

On Monday morning, veteran cornerback Sean Smith was reportedly released by the Oakland Raiders, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The move clears $8.5 million in 2018 salary cap space for the Raiders, two days before the start of free agency.

Attorney Jonathan Dennis said Woods "felt the sentence, obviously, was not as strict as it should have been, but he's pleased he's admitting guilt". However, the four-year contract signed in 2016 included an out this offseason that required no guaranteed money beyond 2017. But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have chose to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year. 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. Plus, Carrie is a free agent. The Raiders released David Amerson, a starter last season when he was healthy, in February.

The 30-year-old appeared in 14 games for the Raiders last season, starting eight.

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