Cincinnati Bengals Keeps Player on Team to Help Pay for Daughter Chemo Treatments
As a fan of the Baltimore Ravens, I’m upset with Ray Rice but love the story of Cincinnati Bengals keeping Devon Still on the team to help pay for his daughter’s chemo treatments. Am I becoming a Bengals’ fan now?
Devon Still was cut from the team due to inability to focus on football at this time. Still has a four year old daughter, Leah, who is currently undergoing chemo treatments.
The team made the decision to keep him on the practice squad which allows him to use the team’s health insurance and a nice pay check. Leah suffers from a potentially fatal cancer called neuroblastoma.
Still has expressed his sincere gratitude towards the Bengals team for affording him this opportunity. The Bengals has shown tremendous class and deserved to be recognized for that gesture of kindness.
