His plea will have him serving one year in prison with three years probation, but if convicted as charged, Smith faces a maximum sentence of seven years. 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 past year.

The Raiders are releasing veteran cornerback Sean Smith, a source told the Bay Area News Group.

The move clears $8.5 million in 2018 salary cap space for the Raiders, two days before the start of free agency.

Smith was accused of assaulting his sister's then-boyfriend, Christopher Woods, on July 4. Add on Smith's 2018 workout bonus of $250,000, and the Raiders add $8.5 million to their $15.8 million in cap space. Smith's National Football League future will be put on hold, but after a poor 2017 season, it would be surprising to see an National Football League team take a shot on him after he is released.

Smith got benched in his first game with the Raiders after getting burned by New Orleans' Brandin Cooks for a 98-yard touchdown. Smith contributed to a lackluster Oakland secondary, and though he intercepted Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott twice in one game, was largely inconsistent on the year. The 30-year-old played well for the Raiders down the stretch last season, after a year and a half of disappointing production.

Smith's release underscores the Raiders' needs at cornerback this offseason.

Carrie is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday and is free to talk to potential suitors this week.
