TE Derek Carrier returns to Raiders on 3-year deal

The Raiders released Smith on Monday. A person familiar with the move says Smith was told that he will be let go before the start of the new league year.

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders are releasing cornerback Sean Smith to create more salary cap room heading into free agency.

Smith is also facing legal problems. Cook led the Raiders in receiving yards last season with 688 on 54 catches.


Ex-Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith was just remanded into custody to begin a 1-year jail sentence after pleading guilty to felony assault stemming from a 2017 attack in Pasadena.

The longtime boyfriend of Smith's sister was trying to intervene in a dispute between the siblings, the prosecutor said. Two witnesses testified during a preliminary hearing in December that Smith stomped Woods' head as he lay bleeding and unconscious.

The Raiders have found their replacement for the aging, unproductive tight end Lee Smith, signing former 49ers, Redskins and Rams tight end Derek Carrier to a three-year contract, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. He reportedly suffered a severe right knee injury in December of 2015 but missed only part of 2016 and played in 14 games last season for the Rams. Dexter McDonald and Antonio Hamilton are the other two cornerbacks under contract, and TJ Carrie has interest from the Broncos, according to CBS Sports, since he's set to hit unrestricted free agency on Wednesday.
