A fringe player facing long odds at making the Raiders’ roster was arrested for a street racing incident in Houston late Saturday night.
Kemah Siverand, a cornerback from Oklahoma State, was one of three people arrested for just after midnight.
Siverand, according to Houston Police, stopped for officers, but then drove another mile before making a final stop. He was charged with felony evading arrest and two others were charged with racing on the highway.
At least two other cars were involved but were not located.
Siverand, 24, was signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent but released when caught trying to sneak a a woman wearing Seattle gear into his hotel room in defiance of pandemic protocols.
The Raiders worked out Siverand and signed him to the practice squad until Oct. 27. He remained on the practice squad and was not promoted to the 53-man roster, but signed a reserve/future contract along with a number of other players on Jan. 5.
Reseve/future contracts are not guaranteed and tie a player to an organization through training camp at their discretion.
