Kemah Siverand may be one of the most notorious NFL players never to play in a game.
The Las Vegas Raiders announced on Thursday afternoon that they have waived the safety from Oklahoma Sate. He was signed to the practice squad in late October.

SIverand, who entered the NFL last year as an undrafted free agent, has only made headlines for off-field issues since joining the league. Earlier this year, Siverand was arrested in Houston for street racing.

Houston police said that Siverand initially stopped for officers, but then drove another mile and was arrested. The Raiders kept him in their program, though, until Thursday.
Siverand had already made the news before the Raiders signed him. He was originally signed by the Seattle Seahawks. He was cut by Seattle last August after he tried to sneak a woman into the team’s training camp hotel, which was under quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic. Siverand had the woman dress in team clothing to make it appear she was part of the organization.
The caper did not work.
With the Siverand release, the Raiders now have an opening on the 90-man roster.
