Unfortunately, Smith never quite worked out as expected in Oakland, along with a myriad of other acquisitions that continue to plague the Raiders even today.

"Raiders cornerback Sean Smith will plead guilty Tuesday to a felony count of assault with great bodily injury related to an altercation in Pasadena previous year, per a person familiar with the matter", tweets Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times.
