Bengals' Still signed to active roster, jersey sales hit record

The Cincinnati Bengals signed defensive tackle Devon Still to the active roster from the practice squad, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, announced.

“Congrats to @Dev_Still71 on being signed to the Bengals active roster. Thanks to the Bengals organization for all their support,” Rosenhaus tweeted late Tuesday.

The Bengals said nothing officially.

Earlier in the day it had been reported that Still’s jersey was the most sold in a 24-hour period in Bengals history.

Proceeds from the jersey sales go to cancer research. Still’s daughter has cancer, and even though he said he couldn’t give football 100 percent, the Bengals signed him so he could pay for treatment.
