CINCINNATI Devon Still and his courageous young daughter have provided a little bit of calm in the midst of atumultuous week ofhorror storiessurroundingthe National Football League.

Still found out late Tuesday he's been added to the Bengals' active roster, tripling his practice squad salary.


Still was cut from the team in the final preseason weekend, then re signed to play on the practice squad so he could continue receiving an income and health insurance coverage.


A practice squad player earns about $100,000 per season. The minimum salary for an active roster player? About $405,000 per season.

"We have an open roster spot, and this is the best football move we can make to fill it," head coach Marvin Lewis said in a release Wednesday that formally announced the move.


"We think Devon is ready to rejoin our line rotation and be productive. It already was stated that a big reason Devon opened on the practice squad was that he couldn't fully focus on football this preseason," Lewis continued. "He had to take care of his daughter. But Devon has told us he feels ready to contribute now, so it's the right move at the right time. And we've told Devon he can still be afforded the personal time he needs to attend to his daughter's care."


The good news out of the Queen City is in stark contrast to the bleak socially minded NFL headlines popping up over the past weeks and months.


On Monday, the world collectively gasped when the website TMZ leaked video of former Ravens running back Ray Rice brutally punching his then fianceein a public elevator and then dragging her unconscious body out into a hallway at an Atlantic City casino.


Then, questions arose as to how and why the NFL didn't get access to the video tape. After saying they'd asked for and not been able to receive the recording, the Associated Press reported Wednesday that an NFL executive said the league received a copy back in April.


In total, 28 NFL players have been arrested since wholesale ncaa jerseys Feb.


While some charges in some of the cases have been dropped, the stories alone have given the league a proverbial black eye.


But then there's Cincinnati, where goodwill and positive storylines continue to befront pagenews.


The Bengals Pro Shop said Tuesday that proceeds fromevery Still jersey sold at the store will go toward Cincinnati Children's Hospital and pediatric cancer care and research. Bengals' blog SB Nation Cincy Jungle said those jerseys are selling for $100.


Jeff Berding, director of sales and public affairs for the team, told ESPN Tuesday nightthe Still jersey has sold more than any other Bengals jersey in this span of time in franchise history.


Still almost retired from football completely when he discovered his daughter was facing stage 4 neuroblastoma a few months ago.


"When I found out, I told my family I was done. Done. I didn't feel comfortable leaving my daughter while she's going through this," said Still. "She's fighting for her life. Sports is not more important than me being there while my daughter is fighting for her life," Still told Cincy Jungle.


Beyond the Dt5FW6a9x nfl youth jerseys donations to fund research to battle cancers like those his daughter had, Still is also participating in a fundraising event cheap custom basketball jerseys where he will donate to fund pediatric cancer research for every quarterback sack the Bengals' defense makes. http://forum.baanpong.org/index.php?topic=270058.0
