Kemah Siverand's rookie mistake trying to sneak woman into hotel cost him his job

The Seattle Seahawks were serious when they said players would have to approach the upcoming NFL season with great discipline. 

Kemah Siverand found out the hard way. 

The rookie cornerback was cut from the Seahawks roster this week after trying to sneak in a female visitor into the team hotel, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The best part of the story is the woman came in the most suspect way possible, wearing Seahawks gear to disguise herself as a player. The Seahawks have not confirmed either report. 

As one person pointed out, Siverand has recently made a Youtube channel to vlog his rookie experience. It’s unclear whether the video was leaked on there. 

Albert Breer says the hotel’s security caught the incident on camera. If so, we’re gonna need surveillance video of this bust ASAP. 

It didn’t take long for Twitter to roast the rook for his bold move.  

Earlier this month, Pete Carroll, the NFL’s oldest coach, made it clear that he has high expectations for himself, as well as his players, to live responsibly and with self-discipline off-the-field.


“As far as being however old I am, I’m taking it as a personal challenge,” Carroll said. “If I happen to get this stuff, I’m going to kick ass on this stuff. If I don’t, it’s going to be because I’ve been able to find a way to luck my way through it. Because this is a very treacherous thing that everybody is dealing with. We’ve got, hopefully have good fortune along the way, with as well as having great discipline.”

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, players have been urged to avoid contact outside of training camp. Siverand’s attempt to bring in a visitor was against team rules. 

Siverand, one of three UDFA cornerbacks signed by Seattle this season, would have faced long odds to make the Seahawks final roster without the incident. 

Siverand last played in 13 games this past season for Oklahoma State, almost exclusively on special teams. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder had 11 tackles and one fumble recovery in 26 games at OSU after transferring two seasons at Texas A&M.
