The report also said the Raiders will cut ties with Smith and that the cornerback will be sentenced to one year in jail and three years of probation as part of his plea agreement.

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. Smith was due base salaries of $8.25 million in 2018 and $8.75 million in 2019. This image reflects the Oakland Raiders active roster as of Monday, June 13, 2016 when this image was taken.

Over two seasons with the Raiders, Smith appeared in 29 games with 22 starts and totaled 77 tackles, four interceptions and 17 passes defensed. The 30-year-old played well for the Raiders down the stretch last season, after a year and a half of disappointing production. He was released by the Raiders last week.
