DT Devon Still tweets 'thank you' to Bengals, city after he's part of roster cutdown


CINCINNATI — Defensive tackle tweeted thanks to the Bengals and the city after he was released on Saturday as part of the team's roster cutdown.

Still's 5-year-old daughter, Leah, has overcome cancer in the past year. The second-round pick from 2012 also was released last year, but the Bengals offered him a chance to stay on the practice squad to keep his medical coverage for his daughter. He was eventually added to the roster and played in 12 games.

"Have nothing but love for the Bengals organization and the city of Cincinnati. Both helped..." he tweeted.

The Bengals also put linebacker on an injury list. He'll be eligible to return after six weeks. Burfict is recovering from two knee operations.
