You may think that all NFL stories are bad, but you should rest easy knowing that only most of them are. That's because (occasionally) good news comes out of the league, and one of those positive exceptions reached the newswire this week in the form of the Cincinnati Bengals re-signing defensive tackle Devon Still so he could have benefits (like health insurance) and a paycheck to pay for his four-year-old daughter Leah's cancer treatments. At only 25-years-old, you'd think Still would be nearing the prime of his career, but instead he spent the offseason distracted from football (cancer in your child would tend to do that) which left him at a disadvantage when cuts came around. The subsequent move by the Bengals to add him to the practice squad will give him over $100,000 this season, the aforementioned health benefits and less time on the road, allowing him to be with his daughter for the months ahead.
