Raiders to release CB Smith after guilty plea in assault case


He then played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-2015 before signing a four-year, $40 million deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Below is Oakland's official news release on Monday's transactions. Both cornerbacks signed lucrative contracts in 2016.

Sean Smith is once again set to be a free agent, at least if rumors from Bill Williamson are correct that the Oakland Raiders have chose to release the veteran cornerback.

At 9 a.m. Monday, NFL teams became eligible to begin negotiating with other teams' impending free agents.

Smith, 30, initially entered a not guilty plea to felony assault and battery charges.

Mr Tillerson was also accompanied on the visit by his Chief of Staff, Margaret Peterlin; Colonel John Walker, as well as the U.S. Tillerson says the visa restrictions were necessary because of "all the conflict that exists on Chad's borders".

Aldon Smith pleaded not guilty Monday to all charges stemming from his recent domestic violence case, TMZ Sports reported.

The Raiders now have moved on from Smith and David Amerson this offseason. He allowed opposing quarterbacks to post a 116.5 passer rating when targeting him in 2016, according to SportRadar. That was down from a 113.3 rating in his one-plus season under Norton.

Smith first reached the National Football League as a member of the Miami Dolphins and spent the first four years of his career as their starting cornerback. Plus, Carrie is a free agent. Getting released from the Raiders didn't really change that much about his career: He has been banned from playing since the suspension.

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

Whalen has played 43 games over six seasons in the NFL. He also has 47 punt returns for 378 yards and 29 kickoff returns for 701 yards.
