Former Bengals DT Devon Still works out with Colts

Devon Still was cut from the Bengals' roster due to the depth at defensive tackle, but maybe a team like the Colts could use him for added depth on their defensive line.

We may see Devon Still back with an NFL team soon.

After the Bengals parted with the veteran defensive tackle during final roster cuts, Still has yet to get a reported workout with another team until today. According to ESPN's Field Yates, Still worked out with the Indianapolis Colts, though the team has not signed him yet. The Colts are in need of depth along the defensive line after getting gashed by the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 to the tune of 147 yards and two scores on the ground.

The Colts were already thin along their line after losing Arthur Jones to a season-ending ankle injury in the preseason. The problem is they play with a 3-4 defense, whereas Still has played his college and NFL career in a 4-3 defense, so it would be an adjustment for him,

Still has been the most well-known Bengals player over the past year as he's tried to balance playing football while remaining by his daughter Leah's side as she battled Neuroblastoma, a form of pediatric cancer, from which she is now in remission.

A former second-round pick out of Penn State in the 2012 NFL draft, Still is now classified as a fourth-year NFL player. In 30 career games, Still has registered 40 tackles and one forced fumble. He played in 12 games last year while notching 19 tackles.

Hopefully, he'll end up joining another team this year, though it will have to be via a 53-man roster, as he doesn't have any practice squad eligibility left.
