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.

Aldon Smith pleaded not guilty Monday to all charges stemming from his recent domestic violence case, TMZ Sports reported.

The Raiders are releasing cornerback Sean Smith, according to multiple reports, parting with a player who would have been due a significant contract next season and is mired in legal issues.

The Raiders' move to release Smith saves the team $8.5 million on their salary cap. He then played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-2015 before signing a four-year, $40 million deal with the Oakland Raiders. But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have chose to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year. Smith endured a handful of benchings over the past two seasons and finished a year ago as the 76th player at his position, per Pro Football Focus.

Smith got benched in his first game with the Raiders after getting burned by New Orleans' Brandin Cooks for a 98-yard touchdown.

Smith first reached the National Football League as a member of the Miami Dolphins and spent the first four years of his career as their starting cornerback. He said he was only on the field in certain packages early in the season and could not get into the flow of a game as a result. Last season, he lost his starting job to TJ Carrie before becoming one of the Raiders' better defenders in the last month of the season.
