NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports Raiders CB Sean Smith has lost his job to T.J. Carrie.

This started to happen at the beginning of camp, and now it looks official. Signed to a four-year, $40-million contract last March, Smith rebounded somewhat after being burnt to a crisp and benched his first game with the Raiders, but things have apparently not improved this offseason. He is still seeing snaps in nickel packages, but that may change once first-rounder Gareon Conley (leg) returns to health.

Raiders RCB Sean Smith's first-team reps have declined in recent practices.

Disappointing as a 2016 free agent investment, Smith has begun losing reps at outside cornerback to T.J. Carrie, who is now bookending LCB David Amerson with the first team. Smith worked as the second-team right corner in Friday and Saturday's practices, then played nickel linebacker in the Raiders' dime package in Sunday's session. Smith is guaranteed $9.5 million in 2017.

Raiders RCB Sean Smith (shoulder) said he is "healthy."

Smith underwent shoulder surgery in January to fix an issue which bothered him over the second half of the season, but he is good to go now. Signed to a four-year, $40-million deal last offseason, Smith started his Raiders career by literally being benched in Week 1, but he turned in a reasonably effective season despite the inauspicious start. Now healthy, Smith promises to be "the Sean of old."

Raiders RCB Sean Smith is recovering from shoulder surgery.

"He's going to be just fine," were the words of GM Reggie McKenzie. Smith missed Week 9 with a shoulder ailment. Headed into the second season of a four-year, $40 million contract, Smith was benched in literally Week 1 before settling into a decent campaign. Turning 30 in July, Smith will return as a 2017 starter.
Jan 19 - 4:51 PM

Raiders RCB Sean Smith (shoulder) is inactive for Week 9.

Smith was close to playing, but couldn't make it through pregame warmups. T.J. Carrie will start opposite David Amerson. Smith should return after Oakland's Week 10 bye.

Raiders RCB Sean Smith (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 9.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported early in the week that Smith would likely miss Sunday night's game against the Broncos, but Smith's ability to practice on a limited manner the past two days suggests he has a good shot at suiting up. If he ultimately can't, T.J. Carrie would take over at right cornerback.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Raiders CB Sean Smith (shoulder) is expected to miss just one week.

Smith's injury looked much worse when he went down in ton of pain in the first quarter against the Bucs. It sounds like he's avoided anything serious. Smith has played extremely well since he was roasted by Brandin Cooks in Week 1 at the Superdome. T.J. Carrie filled in with Smith out on Sunday.

Raiders CB Sean Smith suffered a let shoulder injury in Sunday's game against the Bucs, and will not return.

Smith landed extremely hard in the first quarter. He was in a ton of pain, but wasn't formally ruled out until midway through the second half. He could be dealing with a multi-week issue.

Raiders CB Sean Smith was benched against the Saints Week 1.

Smith had a tough day overall, but the biggest blunder was allowing Brandin Cooks to fly by him untouched for a 98-yard touchdown. "I thought that he had a rough day, so we took him out," Del Rio said. "He’ll be back. He’s going to play well for us, but he didn’t play well today." The Raiders will obviously hope to see better from their $40-million corner this week against the Falcons.

Raiders signed CB Sean Smith, formerly of the Chiefs, to a four-year, $40 million contract.

The deal includes $20 million guaranteed. After missing out on Janoris Jenkins, the Raiders turned their attention to Smith, ended up with a more consistent corner at a much cheaper price, and stole talent from a division rival. At 6-foot-4, 214 with nearly 35-inch arms, Smith is an imposing press-man cornerback coming off a terrific season in Kansas City. The Raiders now have elite size on the boundaries with Smith bookending David Amerson (6-foot-1, 205).

The Kansas City Star's Terez Paylor reports the Chiefs "are making a strong push" to re-sign free agent CB Sean Smith.

Oakland is also interested after striking out on Janoris Jenkins. Arguably the best corner left on the market, Smith will try to goad the teams into a bidding war. The Chiefs pass defense was a mess early, but it solidified after Smith returned from a three-game suspension.
Wed, Mar 9, 2016 08:47:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Raiders "have turned their attention" to free agent CB Sean Smith.

Oakland was reportedly involved in the market for Janoris Jenkins, but he has agreed to terms with the Giants. The Raiders will now turn to Smith, who is a more consistent and likely cheaper option. Rapoport reports the Chiefs are not out of the running for Smith yet, and the 49ers are also reportedly interested.
Wed, Mar 9, 2016 11:22:00 AM

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Raiders and 49ers are "very interested" in free agent CB Sean Smith.

Smith would fit either club as a plus-sized (6'4/214) press-man corner. Smith is expected to command $8 million to $10 million annually, and both San Francisco and Oakland are positioned well to meet an asking price like that.

The Kansas City Star reports free agent CB Sean Smith is drawing "significant interest."

Per reporter Terez A. Paylor, "multiple teams" have reached out to Smith since the "legal tampering" period began Monday. Smith is reportedly seeking $8-$10 million per season. He's Rotoworld's No. 4 free agent corner.
