Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Bengals DT Devon Still, announced via his Twitter account that Cincinnati has signed his client to their active roster.
Congrats to @Dev_Still71 on being signed to the Bengals active roster. Thanks to the Bengals organization for all their support

The Bengals decided to sell Still’s jersey and donate all proceeds go to pediatric cancer research and they have already sold more in the past 24 hours than any other jersey in team history.
In case you’re not aware, Still’s daughter is battling cancer and instead of waiving Still completely, the team elected to sign him to their practice squad to help him through this process.
The Bengals have really handed this situation with a great deal of class and deserve the positive attention that comes for their support of Still and his family.
Still, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Bengals who has yet to live up to his draft status. In 2013, Still appeared in 10 games and recorded seven tackles and three pass defenses.
