The charges stem from an incident last off-season when Smith reportedly beat his sister's boyfriend.

The Times reported that Smith is expected to plead guilty to a felony count of assault with great bodily injury, and will be sentenced to one year in jail and three years' probation as part of his plea agreement.

Smith would have been due $8.25 million in 2018 and possibly $8.75 million in 2019, plus up to $250,000 in workout bonuses, according to Spotrac.

The Silver and Black have released cornerback Sean Smith, a source told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

The 30-year-old appeared in 14 games for the Raiders last season, starting eight.

Smith, who turns 31 in July, signed an eye-popping four-year, $40 million contract - $20 million guaranteed - prior to the 2016 season, but never lived up to his billing. He was able to continue play with the Raiders, his legal matter not resulting in any time missed aside from the occasional practice day.

Smith got benched in his first game with the Raiders after getting burned by New Orleans' Brandin Cooks for a 98-yard touchdown. Both cornerbacks signed lucrative contracts in 2016. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't annonced the move. Many holes in it, however, remain.

Carrie is believed a higher priority to re-sign, although there is some question as to whether the Raiders' interest will match that from other teams on the open market.
