When it is all said and done, everyone deserves a second chance to redeem themselves.

For rookie cornerback Kemah Siverand, who was cut by the Seahawks in August, his second chance at his professional career in the NFL is here.

As of Tuesday, Siverand has officially signed with the Las Vegas Raiders’ practice squad along with linebacker James Onwualu.

The Seahawks released Siverand after he attempted to sneak a woman into the team hotel and was caught doing so on surveillance footage.

The woman was even seen wearing Seahawks gear to try and disguise her as a player. The plan obviously failed miserably.

In a different world than the one we are in right now, this probably would have been fine. But the Seahawks were strict with their safety protocols and did not give him any leeway, quickly cutting him.

After being cut, he took to Twitter to apologize to the organization for not abiding by team rules.

Three months have passed since then, and now Siverand is getting another shot with a different team.

Hopefully, the 23-year-old has learned his lesson from the last time.
