Multiple news outlets are reporting that former Raiders first-round pick Anthony Wayne Smith (drafted No. 11 overall in '90) has been charged with murder. Smith and two alleged associates are accused of killing a 31-year-old Lancaster (California) man two years ago.

Smith, a defensive end, played for the Raiders from 1991-98. He recorded 57.5 sacks in 98 career games.

According to reorts, the victim’s body was beaten and shot several times before being dumped near the Antelope Valley poppy fields (11 miles west of Lancaster). One count of murder was filed against the 43-year-old Smith, as well as against Charles Honest of Los Angeles and Dewann White of Bloomington. All three were arrested earlier this week.

Smith was in Lancaster Superior Court Thursday; his bail was recommended at $1.05 million. Honest and White were scheduled to appear Friday, with a recommended bail of $1 million.

No word on whether the Bengals are now interested in offering Smith a one-year contract to come out of retirement.

Note to all you pansies who are sooooo PC, shut up!  Seriously the Bengals deserve this remark and more.  Look at the track record the past 5 years and then acknowledge that they have earned their stripes.  (Yes I know what I said about the stripes).  If you don't like it, quit like their QB!

LMAO. You guys are being too harsh on Andy, That last line was a classic.  If I wasnt reading this article muttering to myself "he was a raider?  if hes in the news for something negative.... im shocked its not the bengals" and sure enough that last line had me at the word "bengals".  dont listen to them Benoit.... Pure classicness.  Bengals did deserve that shot taken at them.  And I didnt know at journalism school that all their articles are suppose to lack humor.  Want serious journalism then yall can go read a wall street journal or something.  I liked it.  Thumbs up!!  :D

Anthony Smith's life started to crash and burn right about the time he got married to Vanity.  Great player, all-pro and how he has fallen severely over the years.  Than again this is only an allegation.  Smith was also alleged to have been involved in arson that killed a person in Venice Beach a few years back.

I just don't understand how you reach the NFL & acquire super stardom only to end up facing/doing jail time????

Friends & family are important... but when you don't listen to those who sincerely have your best interest at heart; bad things like this can happen!
