Bengals’ defensive tackle Devon Still recently spoke with ESPN about the Bengals cutting him, but resigning him to the practice squad in order to help him pay for his daughter’s cancer treatment.

Still has been with the team since being drafted in 2011. Although Still has struggled to make the kind of impact both he and the Bengals would like to see him make in the NFL, Still is the kind of person any team would like to have on their roster. Still has suffered several injuries since joining the NFL, which may have contributed to teams choosing not to place a claim on Still once he was released. Still is naturally distracted and acknowledges being unable to give all he’d like to his profession, but he’s doing what any person would do. I’m proud to support an organization that takes care of its players the way they have here. Hopefully it’ll help Still and his family get through what must be the most difficult time of his life.
We’re all pulling for you, Still Family. Wishing you a speedy recovery and good things to come in the future.
