Bengals released DT Devon Still.
He wasn't able to beat out Brandon Thompson for backup duties behind starter Geno Atkins. Still saw 237 snaps last season after a brief practice squad stint and it's feasible that could happen again if someone on the D-line gets injured. Sep 5 - 12:28 PM

Bengals re-signed DT Devon Still.

The Bengals let Still enter free agency, hoping to bring him back at a cheaper rate than the $1.54 million it would have cost to tender him. The former second-round pick hasn't lived up to expectations, but he's still a serviceable backup tackle. The 19 tackles Still recorded last season were a career high.

Bengals promoted DT Devon Still from the practice squad.

The No. 52 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Still was released at final cuts, but passed through waivers unclaimed. He'll provide depth, and is unlikely to be active for Week 2.

Bengals signed DT Devon Still to their practice squad.

It's telling that Still passed through waivers unclaimed. The 25-year-old was the 52nd overall pick in the 2012 draft. Defensive tackle-needy teams may eventually give Still a look, but he's been an obvious disappointment so far.

Bengals waived DT Devon Still.

A 2012 second-rounder, Still's two seasons in Cincinnati were marked by injury and ineffectiveness. Still generated first-round hype before falling all the way to No. 53. His draft pedigree should earn him a second look, but there's been nothing to suggest he will be an effective NFLer.

Bengals placed DT Devon Still (back) and TE Alex Smith (wrist) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

They signed ex-Chargers DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo to fill Still's roster spot. A second-round pick in the 2012 draft, Still has yet to make an impact through two NFL seasons. Brandon Thompson emerged this year as a bigger contributor.

Bengals DT Devon Still remains sidelined by a dislocated elbow.

Still might not be back until December as he's dealing with severe swelling. It's awful timing for the second-year pro as he would have been in line for huge playing time thanks to Geno Atkins' season-ending knee injury. The Bengals are going to be forced to lean heavily on Brandon Thompson at defensive tackle.

Second-round pick DT Devon Still is expected to work at multiple positions during Bengals OTAs.

Still has experience at defensive end, but is a better fit, schematically, as a three-technique in DC Mike Zimmer's defense, where he projects as an interior pass rusher. In addition to technique issues, Still needs to show better consistency if he hopes to compete for a starting job with Geno Atkins and Domata Peko.
Sat, May 19, 2012 09:45:00 PM

Bengals agreed to terms with rookie DT Devon Still, the No. 53 overall pick, on a four-year contract.

Still dominated the Big Ten conference when his motor was running, although league evaluators believed he took too many plays off. He was still a value pick in a draft class full of them for the Bengals. As a rookie, Still should push hard for playing time behind starters Geno Atkins and Domata Peko. Cincinnati has the potential to field an exciting front-four rotation.
Fri, May 11, 2012 02:26:00 PM

Bengals DL coach Jay Hayes believes No. 53 pick Devon Still is a "good pass rusher for a defensive tackle."

"He has athletic ability, quickness and can slip blocks," Hayes said. "He has a lot of upside to him. That’s what you’re betting on with him." Still notched 17 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks as a senior. With the Bengals favoring a robust rotation along their defensive line, Still could be in for just 20-30 snaps per game as a rookie

Bengals selected Penn State DT Devon Still with the No. 53 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

For a player "mocked" as early as No. 12 and even -- in some instances -- the top ten early in the draft process, Still looks like quite good value midway through round two. The 2011 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, Still goes 6-foot-5, 303, and was highly productive in college, despite taking some plays off. He will add size and big-time ability to Cincy's interior-line rotation.

The Denver Post expects the Broncos to use their first-round pick on a defensive tackle.

Penn State's Devon Still could be an inviting possibility at No. 25. Other options may include LSU's Michael Brockers, Michigan State's Jerel Worthy, and UConn's Kendall Reyes. Still would be more desirable than the others, particularly from a production standpoint. The Broncos lost Brodrick Bunkley in free agency, and haven't had an elite interior D-Lineman in quite some time.

Penn State DT Devon Still ran "unofficial" forty times of 5.00 and 5.03 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Still was a highly productive college pass rusher when healthy and draws high marks for technical skills. His forty times aren't impressive when compared to Fletcher Cox, Whitney Mercilus, or Quinton Coples, but they are respectable for a 6-foot-5, 303-pound lineman. Expect Still to be a late first-round pick.

Penn State DT Devon Still will miss the Senior Bowl with a sprained big toe.

Per NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, Still is expected to be ready for the Combine. Still, a massive 4-3 tackle or 3-4 end depending on whom you ask, is a projected top-ten pick. He'll be joined on the sideline in Mobile by Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill (foot), Wisconsin WR Nick Toon (foot), Baylor WR Kendall Wright (ankle), Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd (undisclosed), Stanford TE Coby Fleener (undisclosed), and Alabama SS Mark Barron (undisclosed).
