Listen as Bengals Defensive Tackle Devon Still Thanks Saints Head Coach Sean Payton
Devon Still is fighting one of the hardest battles a parent could ever. His four year old daughter is fighting cancer, and he has the support of the NFL and Saints coach Sean Payton.
Still's daughter Leah Sari was diagnosed with cancer in June, and the Cincinnati Bengals brought Still back to the practice squad following being cut. The Bengals did so in order to keep Still on the team's health insurance and give his family financial support through the situation. Still was promoted from the practice squad to the 53 man roster last week and recorded three tackles against the Falcons.
Upon hearing the news, Payton ordered 100 Devon Still jerseys (with jersey proceeds going towards hospital bills), totaling a $10,000 donation. Still never had the opportunity to thank Payton until this morning on Mike and Mike.
Listen as Still and Payton share a heartwarming moment on ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning.
