Smith will also be sentenced to three years probation as part of the guilty plea. Last Monday, the Raiders released Smith from his contract.

Back in August, Sean Smith was arrested on a felony assault charge for an alleged altercation that occurred on Independence Day after he brutally attacked Christopher Woods. He was charged with assault by means of force to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury, and was due for his next court date Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Over two seasons with the Raiders, Smith appeared in 29 games with 22 starts and totaled 77 tackles, four interceptions and 17 passes defensed.

Below is Oakland's official news release on Monday's transactions.

Newhouse started 14 games last season for the Raiders but new coach Jon Gruden said at the combine that the play at right tackle last season was inconsistent.

The Oakland Raiders are releasing cornerback Sean Smith to create more salary cap room heading into free agency.

Smith was arrested for causing "great bodily injury" related to an altercation in Pasadena a year ago, the report said. 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.

The Raiders have released Sean Smith from a four-year contract, a source said Monday morning. Starting cornerback TJ Carrie and safety Reggie Nelson are both scheduled to become unrestricted free agents on Wednesday.
