Raiders added to the competition for CB Sean Smith

Mar 9, 2016 at 9:04 AM--


NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Oakland Raiders have entered the mix for Kansas City Chiefs free agent CB Sean Smith. The 49ers were also said to have had discussions about bringing in Smith, who is one of the top rated cornerbacks to hit free agency.


It is not the first time that the 49ers have been interested in Smith and he would definitely fill a position of need. It is unknown how serious those discussions have been, especially given Smith's suspension last season. According to Rapoport, the Chiefs also remain in the mix to retain Smith. It is unlikely that the 49ers get into a bidding war for Smith or any free agent.

Smith, a 2009 draft selection out of Utah by the Miami Dolphins, has had 353 tackles, 10 interceptions, three forced fumbles, 81 passes deflected, and a defensive touchdown over his career.

In March of 2013, Smith signed a three-year, $18 million deal with $12 million guaranteed to play for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was suspended for the first three games of the 2015 season after pleading guilty to a DUI charge last April.

The Green Bay Packers did it with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. It's a solid blueprint that allows a rookie to more easily transition from the college game to the pros, especially when thrown into an offense as complex as head coach Kyle Shanahan's. "First and foremost, Jimmy's really good," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He's a
