Saints buy 100 Devon Still jerseys to sack pediatric cancer

Wednesday September 10th, 2014

We definitely need some happy NFL news today.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced Tuesday they would sell replicas of defensive end Devon Stills jersey with the proceeds going toward pediatric cancer care and research. On Wednesday the New Orleans Saints purchased 100 copies.

Still was released in the final round of roster cuts but was signed to the Bengals practice squad in order to have health insurance to pay for his daughter's cancer treatments. 

Still was added to the Bengals' active roster Wednesday. A team official told that the franchise sold more Still jerseys than other jersey in its history.

The Bengals posted a video on Twitter of Still thanking fans for their support.
