    This will make you smile AND cry. The Cincinnati Bengals cut defensive tackle Devon Still from the team on Saturday. He admitted he wasn't giving football 100%. Why not?

    Well, Still has had more pressing things on his mind. His 4-year-old daughter, Leah, was diagnosed with stage 4 pediatric cancer in June. So, the Bengals re-signed Still as a member of the practice squad. :loveyou:

    The Bengals' kind gesture ensures that the Stills will have an income, health insurance for Leah, and that Devon will be able to spend more time at home with Leah. Best wishes for Leah! :heartbeat:

    Leah is still undergoing stem cell treatment to rebuild her cells and ensure that the cancer remains in remission. Doctors are optimistic that the VOD was caught in time and can be treated.
