Raiders CB Kemah Siverand, Who Snuck Girl Into Team Hotel, Arrested For Street Racing; Mugshot Released (PIC)
Kemah Siverand is doing everything he possibly can to not have a career in the NFL.
Over the weekend, the Las Vegas Raiders cornerback was arrested for street racing in Houston and is now facing felony evading charges.
You may remember him from being released by the Seahawks last season after he was caught trying to sneak a woman into the team’s hotel.
“After taking time to reflect and really consider the seriousness of my actions, I have tried to find the appropriate words to apologize to all of those affected by my poor decision and immaturity,” Siverand’s apology read. “I’ve privately apologized to Coach [Pete] Carroll, [general manager] John Schneider, and the Seahawks organization. I violated team rules, which would have been unacceptable in normal times, but absolutely inexcusable now during a pandemic. I understand my lapse in judgement put my teammates and the organization at risk, thankfully no one else was affected by my actions.”
The undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma State was waived back in August.
“I want everyone to know that I am truly sorry, hold myself accountable, and am ready to move forward,” Siverand wrote. “I want to make sure this one mistake will not define me, and I will continue training harder than ever to continue pursuing my dreams of playing in the National Football League.”
Siverand received a $2,000 signing bonus from Seattle. That was tied for the third-smallest bonus among the Seahawks’ 17 undrafted free agents.
