Sean Smith Will Plead Guilty to Assault Charge; Cut by Raiders

Sean Smith will be released by Oakland Raiders

Shortly after his release the LA Times' Nathan Fenno reported that Smith will plead guilty Tuesday to a felony count of assault with great bodily injury related to an altercation in Pasadena a year ago.

Smith was charged with assault back in August for allegedly beating and stomping on the head of his sister's boyfriend on the morning of July 4, 2017.

It didn't take long for the Oakland Raiders to release him from the roster as a result.

Smith's departure has plenty to do with his salary, shaving a whopping $8.5 million off the books for 2018.

"He's pleased that [Smith] is admitting guilt, but the sentence is light,"Woods' attorney Jonathan Dennis said of the plea bargain".

After $-3.84 actual EPS reported by Tesla, Inc . for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 15.89 % negative EPS growth. Rockefeller Financial holds 100 shares or 0% of its portfolio. 1,623 were reported by Reynders Mcveigh Cap Mgmt Ltd Liability.

Smith, 30, has played for Miami, Kansas City and Oakland in his career. But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have made a decision to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year. He allowed opposing quarterbacks to post a 116.5 passer rating when targeting him in 2016, according to SportRadar.

Over two seasons with the Raiders, Smith appeared in 29 games with 22 starts and totaled 77 tackles, four interceptions and 17 passes defensed. That was down from a 113.3 rating in his one-plus season under Norton.

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

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. The Raiders released David Amerson, a starter last season when he was healthy, in February. Plus, Carrie is a free agent.
