It is true, the Cincinnati Bengals have cut Devon Still! This makes the second time the football player has not been selected during the preseason. However, despite being cut, Still has remained positive & posted a heartfelt “thank you” to the team on Instagram.
Check out the details!
Devon Still has officially been released from the Cincinnati Bengals! This makes the second time that he did not make it past the last wave of preseason cuts. He is officially a free agent for any other of the NFL teams.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis released a statement via conference call.
He really did a good job this preseason and it’s an unfortunate part of professional sports that not everyone can stay there and be there in the end.
Still has remained positive throughout the entire time. He explained to ESPN that he understood why he was cut. Later he took to his Instagram to post a heartfelt “thank you” to his former team.
When Still was cut last season, the Bengals kept him on the practice squad so that he could keep the medical benefits for his daughter, Leah Still. At the time little Leah was battling stage 4 neuroblastoma. However since then she has went on to bring awareness to the disease, won the Jimmy V. Perseverance Award at the 2015 ESPYs, and recently became a face on the Wheaties. Recently he received the best news a father could receive, that there were no signs of the cancer present in Leah’s system.
Although, he did not make cuts I can appreciate his positivity. He will also be able to keep the medical benefits for an extra five years. We know this is not the last of Devon Still. What are your thoughts? Comment below!
