The Cincinnati Bengals have cut defensive tackle Devon Still.

Still was drafted in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, thus making him ineligible for the Bengals' Practice Squad this season. He is now a free agent.

The Bengals partnered with Devon and Leah in an effort to benefit Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center by selling Devon's No. 75 jersey. The charity program sold nearly 15,000 jerseys and made more than $1.3 million from the sales. All the money was donated to Cincinnati Children's for pediatric cancer research. 

In March, Devon announced Leah's cancer was in remission.

Devon posted on social media after being released from the organization.

"Have nothing but love for the Bengals organization and the city of Cincinnati. Both helped me through one of the darkest times of my life and I am forever grateful. It's time to move forward and see what's next #iKnowThereIsAPlanForMe," Still said.

The Bengals have until 4:00 p.m. Saturday to trim its roster to 53 players.
