A Cincinnati Bengals player who was cut from the team after not giving 100 percent on the field had a good reason for being distracted. Devon Still’s daughter, 4-year-old Leah, was diagnosed with stage 4 pediatric cancer in June.

But the defensive tackle learned Saturday that the Bengals decided to re-sign Still to their practice squad, allowing him to earn the funds and medical insurance he needs to pay for his daughter’s treatment.

  1. This is pretty frickin awesome to see and I think the NFL and all other major sports associations have it in them to do more things like this for their players and their families. I’d like to see as much money that goes into mega stadiums go into research to get these guys and gals better game gear that helps prevent concussions and other injuries. There are so many positive things these organizations can do for the young men and women they employ and their families — LEAD BY EXAMPLE! Millions of young prospective athletes are watching!
