Bengals Prove There's "Good Stuff" Happening in the NFL Too

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," the Cincinnati Bengals show their kindness by helping a player and his family. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Devon Still is a defensive tackle for the team and Leah, his four-year-old daughter, is facing a rare form of cancer.

"When it comes to my daughter, I'm not this big tough guy," Still said recently to CNN affiliate WXIX.

"I want to be there to protect my daughter, I would do anything for her. And just seeing her fight for her life … I don't have no toughness for that.”

Here's the good part.

Although Still was cut by the team before the start of the season, the Bengals immediately re-signed him to the practice squad so he could keep paying for his daughter's care.

The team also decided to donate 100 percent of the sale of Still's jersey to pediatric cancer research.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton even purchased 100 of the jerseys out of his own pocket.
