Still Good in the NFL

In a league that has been plagued by multiple domestic violence disputes, child abuse, and drugs, it’s nice to see there is still good in the NFL.

Today, SportsCenter aired a clip featuring Cincinnati Bengals DT Devon Still and his daughter. A minute into the clip, I was set in tears. Still’s daughter, Leah, is only 4 years old and faces bigger battles than her 6’5, 320 lb. daddy. This past June she was diagnosed with pediatric cancer and has since been fighting it.

How quickly we are reminded of the issues that actually matter off the field.

Still, who was only part of the Bengals’ practice squad this preseason, was activated this week. In honor of Leah, the Bengals are selling his jersey with all proceeds going to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital pediatric cancer care and research.
