For the third consecutive day, the Seahawks have opened up a roster spot. After John Ursua was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday and Brian Allen and Anthony Jones were waived Monday, Seattle has made another move by waiving CB Kemah Siverand on Tuesday.

Siverand, an Oklahoma State product, was one of three cornerbacks signed by the Seahawks as a UDFA following the 2020 NFL Draft, along with Stony Brook’s Gavin Heslop and Texas A&M’s Debione Renfro.
At 6’ and 205 pounds, Siverand saw the majority of his college snaps on special teams. With just 31 5/8” arms and a 76 1/8” wingspan, Siverand didn’t resemble a Seattle cornerback and could have been moved to safety. Instead, he has been waived altogether. Even after parting ways with Siverand and Allen over the last two days, the Seahawks still have 11 cornerbacks on the roster.
Seattle now has 76 players on the roster, with four vacant spots. One of those spots is likely to be filled on Tuesday or Wednesday by the return of Ursua.
