On Wednesday, the Seattle Seahawks released cornerback Kemah Siverand, an undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma State, for an undisclosed rule violation. On Thursday, NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero figured out exactly what Siverand did to get cut: He tried to sneak a "female visitor" into the team hotel, which was restricted to visitors due to COVID-19 precautions the Seahawks had put in place. In a tweet, Pelissero added, "The woman was wearing Seahawks gear in an an attempt to disguise herself as a player, I'm told. It did not work."
