Bengals are helping one of their player’s children; The NFL should too

Devon Still was cut from the Cincinnati Bengals before the beginning of the regular season. The Bengals were going to cut ties all together, but they had to big of a heart to let one of their employees be unemployed with a daughter who is fighting pediatric cancer. The team immediately signed Still to their practice squad which pays 107,000 dollars and began helping Still and his family out.

Late Monday, the Cincinnati Bengals announced via their website they were donating all proceeds from sales of Still’s jersey to pediatric cancer research.

Less than 24 hours later, a team official told ESPN.com that more of the practice squad defensive tackle’s black No. 75 jerseys had been sold in that time span than any jersey featuring any other Bengals player ever.

Ever?

“Ever,” Jeff Berding, the Bengals’ director of sales and public affairs, said. He didn’t have an exact number of sales at the time.

This is an awesome deed, I think the NFL should do the same thing, and help Still and his daughter out with treatment. What do you think?
