The Seattle Seahawks cut cornerback Kemah Siverand earlier this week after the undrafted rookie was caught on video attempting to sneak a woman into the team hotel, sources told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Pelissero reported that teams received a memo on July 3 that stated "all hotel accommodations for players during camp must comply with NFL-NFLPA Team Travel Protocol, which states: 'Room visits are permitted only by members of the Traveling Party'".

Siverand previously played at Texas A&M before transferring to OSU.

The defensive back spent his last two collegiate seasons at Oklahoma State. Former Maryland receiver Deon Long was cut for a similar transgression during the Rams' 2016 training camp, which was shown on the 2016 season of Hard Knocks.

Pelissero says the Seahawks busted the hell out of Siverand's little operation - and fired him for putting the team at risk of a coronavirus outbreak. With players not inside a bubble like the National Basketball Association or NHL, there are many more factors as risk for teams.

Siverand's attempt to welcome a visitor into the team hotel was a violation of team rules, especially during a camp that is operating amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
