Raiders to release CB Smith after guilty plea in assault case

Raiders to release CB Smith after guilty plea in assault case

Alameda, Calif. • The Oakland Raiders released cornerback Sean Smith and right tackle Marshall Newhouse on Monday to create more salary cap room heading into free agency.

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. The victim stated that Smith drank copious amounts of tequila before he was assaulted in an incident that involved Smith's sister.

"He's pleased that [Smith] is admitting guilt, but the sentence is light,"Woods' attorney Jonathan Dennis said of the plea bargain". He then played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-2015 before signing a four-year, $40 million deal with the Oakland Raiders. But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have chose to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year. Last season, he lost his starting job to TJ Carrie before becoming one of the Raiders' better defenders in the last month of the season. This after being 109th in passer rating allowed in Weeks 1-11.

MIT study finds fake news travels faster
In general, the researchers found that the misinformation spread faster because it was more fanciful and outrageous. Twitter provided support for the research and granted the MIT team full access to its historical archives.

Newhouse started 14 games at right tackle for the Raiders in 2017, and has played in 100 games with 70 starts over his eight-year National Football League career.

He has appeared in 100 games (70 starts) in his career with the Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Giants and Raiders.
