Bengals re-sign cut player so he can pay for his four-year-old daughter's cancer treatment

(Via DailyMail.Co.UK)  A player cut from the Cincinnati Bengals at the weekend has been re-signed by the team so that he can pay for his four-year-old daughter’s cancer treatment.

Defensive tackle Devon Still, 25, said he understood why he was dropped from the 53-man roster because, since learning in June that his daughter Leah has stage 4 pediatric cancer, he has struggled to concentrate on his game.

‘My whole world turned upside down,’ he told ABC News.

But after failing to make the team on Saturday, the Bengals brought him on to the practice squad instead, which means he will still get paid and receive health insurance.
