    Robin has done the story before on the news. Hope he gets to another team.

    He was an All American at PSU, I believe, with pretty good upside at the next level. It's pretty clear that his daughter's illness pretty much wrecked him, understandably so. It would be right out of Hollywod if he gets a shot with another team and turns into a Pro Bowler while his daughter beats Cancer...:tears2:

    It's just business, and that sucks. He could still get picked back up after injuries, etc.

    The Bengals kept him on full roster last season so he gets the health insurance for the next 5 years regardless.

    There's no joke here.
    His kid has stayed alive because of the health insurance the Bengals provide.
    God bless her.

    The Saints could use some D-line & LB help. Hopefully he'll get another shot!

    That's wonderful that his daughter's cancer is in remission and hats off to the Bengals for providing that much needed health insurance at such a critical time!

    next 5 years? Is that true? I did not know that. How does that work if he is not on the team? Is that a union thing? I'm glad they have coverage.

    The Enquirer has confirmed that the Bengals cut Devon Still on Saturday, but the peace of mind can continue. Because the Bengals kept Still a part of the team, he will have health insurance for the next five years -- even if he never plays another down in the NFL.
