Smith signed a four-year, $40 million contract with the Raiders prior to the 2016 season. He struggled for most of the past two seasons with the team, so it was obvious the team was going to release him, saving the Raiders $8.5 million in salary cap space.

His ple agreement comes after he was arrested and charged with felony assault last year.

Raiders cornerback Sean Smith will plead guilty Tuesday to a felony count of assault with great bodily injury related to an altercation in Pasadena last year, per a person familiar with the matter.
