But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have made a decision to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this 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 a year ago, per a person familiar with the matter", tweets Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times.

Smith was set to make $8.25 million in base salary in 2018, and his release comes with no dead money against Oakland's cap. Entering the season finale, Smith was ranked eighth in the NFL in passer rating allowed (36.3) among cornerbacks with at least 110 coverage snaps in Weeks 12-16, per Pro Football Focus. He allowed opposing quarterbacks to post a 116.5 passer rating when targeting him in 2016, according to SportRadar.

Iowa's unemployment rate steady at 2.9 percent
North Carolina's unemployment rate in January didn't move from the 4.5 percent mark where it's been for three previous months. The number of people classified as unemployed declined to a seasonally adjusted 96,678, the lowest figure since February 2000.

The Oakland Raiders just released free agent bust Sean Smith on the same day that Smith found out about his new home.

Oakland will again seek to bolster the secondary in free agency, looking for a starter at cornerback to pair with last year's first-round pick Gareon Conley.

A veteran of nine seasons, Smith has also played for the Miami Dolphins and Chiefs and has 14 career interceptions, 102 passes defensed and 424 tackles. The 30-year-old played well for the Raiders down the stretch last season, after a year and a half of disappointing production.
