From a football standpoint, Smith's release will save the Raiders $8.25 million.

Following a domestic violence incident in Nob Hill last week, Oakland Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith pled not guilty in court on Monday.

The top free-agent cornerback will sign with the Jets on Wednesday, and he'll hardly go for cheap.

Sean Smith is once again set to be a free agent, at least if rumors from Bill Williamson are correct that the Oakland Raiders have made a decision to release the veteran cornerback. Getting released from the Raiders didn't really change that much about his career: He has been banned from playing since the suspension.

Smith is also facing legal problems.

Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu To Talk With Trump About Attending Embassy Opening
At the outset of the meeting, Trump commented, "We have right now probably the best relationship with Israel we've ever had". He has accused Iran of planning to build precision-guided missile factories in Lebanon, amid tensions along that border.

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.

The longtime boyfriend of Smith's sister was trying to intervene in a dispute between the siblings, the prosecutor said.

Attorney Jonathan Dennis said Woods "felt the sentence, obviously, was not as strict as it should have been, but he's pleased he's admitting guilt". While under contract with Oakland in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, he hadn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2015.

Smith allowed just 15 catches on 27 targets for 202 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions over the final six games for a passer rating of 64.1 as Pagano better took advantage of Smith's size and strength.
