Oakland Raiders release CB Sean Smith, who's off to prison

The Los Angeles Times' Nathan Fenno reports free agent CB Sean Smith will be sentenced to one year in jail as part of a plea deal for his felony assault charge. The move will save the Raiders $8.5 million in 2018. He will be sentenced to one year in jail and five years of probation.

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