Former Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still worked out for the Denver Broncos on Tuesday according to Jeff Legwold. The Bengals and Broncos play each other on Monday Night Football this week.

Still was cut by the Bengals in September and though he has had many workouts with other teams since then, he has not been added to another team's roster since.

Still caught the attention of the world last year as his daughter Leah, was diagnosed with cancer in June 2014 and given a 50-50 chance to live. Leah is now in remission and has no active disease in her body.

In early December, Still was in Cincinnati for a charity event attended by a few of his former Bengals teammates and said he has futures contract offers for after the season ends. That means, he could be signed to a team's offseason roster to compete for a spot next season.

"I just want to go somewhere where I have the opportunity to continue on with my football career and make an impact," Still told ESPN at the event.

Leah, now five-years-old is expected to finish her final cycle of post-cancer treatments in January and, Still hopes he can continue his personal goals in returning to the NFL at that time.

"My daughter went into remission last March, but she still had a long way to go as far as treatment," Still said. "They weren't really sure which direction that was going to go in, but now that my daughter is about to be finished, teams will be able to see that we can get back to living our normal lives."

As for Leah, her hair is growing back and she's looking healthy and happy!
