Below is Oakland's official news release on Monday's transactions.

Smith's departure has plenty to do with his salary, shaving a whopping $8.5 million off the books for 2018.

When Smith first inked a four-year contract with the Raiders for a whopping $38 million, it was enough to stave off every other suitor in the team's hopes to remedy their pass defense.

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

The Raiders rumors surrounding the future of cornerback Sean Smith and the Oakland Raiders has been cloudy this offseason.

Smith's two interceptions against the Dallas Cowboys on December 17 led Oakland, which only had five picks on the year.

Oakland is relying on last season's first-round pick, Gareon Conley, to fill the void at cornerback as he returns from a shin injury that limited him to two games.

Nonetheless, Smith was able to postpone his court date and played 14 games with the Raiders last season, where he made 32 tackles, two assists, and two interceptions.
