Devon Still Announces Retirement From NFL

Former Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still announced his retirement from the NFL.

“I never wanted to be somebody who gives up on their dreams, but I don’t want to be somebody who chases their dreams too long and misses other opportunities,” Still told TMZ.

The 2011 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year finished his collegiate career with Penn State with 113 total tackles and 32.5 sacks. — earning a spot as a consensus first team All-American during his senior season prior to getting drafted in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Still made national headlines in 2014 when he stepped away from football to take care of his daughter Leah, who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma stage 4 cancer. With the NFL’s help, #LeahStrong was able to raise a fortune for his Still Strong Foundation, which provides aid to families with kids fighting cancer.

Still returned the the Bengals’ active roster a couple weeks into the 2014 season and spent time with the Houston Texans and New York Jets in recent years.
