The Raiders released Smith today which wasn't a huge surprise considering his release would free up $8.5 million in cap space, without costing the Raiders any dead cap space.

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

The Raiders also released starting right tackle Marshall Newhouse?on Monday. Smith has agreed to plead guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of assault with great bodily injury and will be sentenced to one year in prison and five years of probation, the attorney for the alleged victim confirmed to The Associated Press. Two witnesses testified during a preliminary hearing in December that Smith stomped Woods' head as he lay bleeding and unconscious. However, the four-year contract signed in 2016 included an out this offseason that required no guaranteed money beyond 2017.
