    I don't follow the NFL, but this is a very classy move by the Bengals. Well done.

    Still knows his heart isn't in it right now, and justifiably so. The team knows that as well, and while they understand, they have a season to get ready for. But this is a very very classy move. Just very well done.

    I'm surprised I never did a followup to this.

    Apparently, the Bengals signed him back to the team, fulltime, on his own merits, and not because of his daughter.

    However, more credit goes to the coach of the New Orleans Saints, who upon when the Bengals started to sell Still's jersey with the proceeds of it going to pediatric cancer research, the Saints' coach purchased 100 of them.

    with that, I'll let ESPN pick it up from here.

    Leah was at the game.

    Since they can't Restore the Roar, might as well use that money to help people.
