Texans Sign Devon Still To Reserve-Future Contract
On Wednesday (Jan 6), the Houstan Texans signed former Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still to a reserve-future contract.
Under his new contract, Still will be paid the minimum salary of $675,000.
Via The Houston Chronicle:
The Texans recently worked out Still along with defensive linemen Josh Watson and Glenn Foster.
Still is a former Bengals second-round draft pick from Penn State who was a consensus All-American for the Nittany Lions. Still also was named the Big Ten Conference Defensive Player of the Year and Big Ten Conference Defensive Lineman of the Year. Still’s last season at Penn State preceded Texans coach Bill O’Brien’s hiring in Happy Valley.
In three seasons for the Bengals, Still, 26, has 40 career tackles, a half-sack and one forced fumble.
The 6-5, 310-pounder had 19 tackles in 12 games last season, but hasn’t played this year since being cut by Cincinnati.
Still’s daughter, Leah, has been an inspiration through her battle with cancer.
Still shaved his head in solidarity with his daughter when she lost her hair while undergoing radiation treatment for Neuroblastoma stage 4 cancer. She underwent surgery to remove a tumor. Still announced in November that Leah is in remission with no signs of cancer.
Devon took to his Instagram page to share the great news with his fans and supporters.
