Shortly after his release the LA Times' Nathan Fenno reported that Smith will plead guilty Tuesday to a felony count of assault with great bodily injury related to an altercation in Pasadena a year ago.

Smith was charged with assault back in August for allegedly beating and stomping on the head of his sister's boyfriend on the morning of July 4, 2017.

Following a domestic violence incident in Nob Hill last week, Oakland Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith pled not guilty in court on Monday.

Smith has had trouble off the field. That combined with his 2018 salary not being guaranteed likely contributed to the Raiders releasing him.

As the Raiders continue to craft and fine-tune Jon Gruden's roster for 2018, Oakland is parting ways with at least one big-name veteran.

Still, given the Raiders' subpar cornerbacks group, Smith was probably the best one among them the second half of the season.

Smith recorded two interceptions in each of the last two seasons after totaling 10 in a combined seven years with the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins. TJ Carrie, who started all 16 games in 2017, is set to become a free agent.

Oakland will again seek to bolster the secondary in free agency, looking for a starter at cornerback to pair with last year's first-round pick Gareon Conley.
