Smith is due back in court April. 5. With AP Photos.The Oakland Raiders released cornerback Sean Smith and right tackle Marshall Newhouse to create more salary cap room heading into free agency. He then played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-2015 before signing a four-year, $40 million deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Smith was hit with 4 misdemeanor charges - domestic violence, assault w/ force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism.
