Some of you may have forgotten about Sean Smith’s assault charges for beating up a man who he alleges abused his sister. He went as far as to step on the man’s head, according to witnesses.
There are plenty of those witnesses and not much wiggle room for Smith. So on Tuesday — the day after being released by the Raiders — he will plead guilty to the assault according to Nathan Fenno of the LA Times.
This plea carries with it a sentence of one year in jail and 3 years probation.

Smith will turn 31 in July. He was set to be released by the Raiders regardless of his legal situation which means the 9-year NFL veteran’s NFL career could be over.
The Raiders had signed Smith to a 4-year deal prior to the 2016 season that paid him an average of $10 million a year. He was one of several big name free agent acquisitions that year and never quite lived up to it.
