Kemah Siverand has finally spoken out after he was released by the Seattle Seahawks nearly two weeks ago for reportedly attempting to sneak a woman into the team hotel, dressed in team apparel.
The undrafted rookie cornerback tweeted an apology on Monday, which reads in part:
“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. 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 judgment put my teammates and the organization at risk, thankfully no one else was affected by my actions.”
Siverand said he plans to continue training and hopes to someday realize his dream of playing in the NFL.
