Ex-Seahawks rookie cut for sneaking woman into hotel signs practice squad deal with Raiders
Kemah Siverand gets another chance.
The cornerback, who was cut off by the Seattle Seahawks in August for attempting to sneak a female guest into the team hotel - in violation of COVID-19 protocols - was signed to the Las Vegas Raiders training team on Tuesday .
The Raiders also added linebacker James Onwualu to the practice group on Tuesday, adding receiver Robert Davis and defenseman D.J. White on the exercise group's injury list.
Seahawks released Siverand in August
Siverand, who had not left Oklahoma state, tried to sneak a woman into the team hotel in August and was caught by surveillance footage.
He even got creative in his attempt to dress the woman in Seahawk's gear to dress her up as a gamer.
At the time, the league was trying to get its season started amid the coronavirus pandemic and had put in place strict security protocols. The team gave him no leeway in the incident and quickly cut him off.
The 23-year-old apologized after losing his job.

"After taking the time to reflect on the seriousness of my actions and really examine them, I have tried to find the right words to apologize to everyone affected by my bad decision and immaturity," wrote Siverand in a statement. "I made private apologies to Coach [Pete] Carroll, [General Manager] John Schneider and the Seahawks organization. I broke team rules that would have been unacceptable in normal times but now absolutely inexcusable during a pandemic. I understand mine." A wrong judgment endangered my teammates and the organization, luckily nobody else was affected by my actions. "
Even though it's just a practice course in Las Vegas, Siverand now has one more try at making it into the league.
