Devon Still, a defensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals, had his life change forever when on June 2 his four-year-old daughter, Leah, was diagnosed with stage-4 neuroblastoma cancer.

As you can imagine, Still wasn’t able to devote 100% to football as he cared for his daughter and the Bengals were forced to cut him from the team’s final 53-man roster. But that’s not how the story ended. . .

Still told ABC News:

“They could have washed their hands with me and said they didn’t care about what I was going through off the field,” Still said. “It’s like a blessing in disguise for me.”

Great job, Bengals. You’ve got new fans-for-life here at Twitchy.
