Free agent DT Devon Still is recovering from October foot surgery.

Still played 25 snaps in September for the Texans last season but went down with a Lisfranc injury that ultimately required surgery. The former second-round pick turns 28 this summer and has yet to become an impact player.

The Houston Chronicle believes Devon Still could be the Texans' starting right end this season.

A 2012 second-round bust in Cincinnati, Still was out of the league last season, but has drawn consistent raves since the spring. Still is competing with 2015 sixth-rounder Christian Covington and third-year UDFA Brandon Dunn.

Texans DE Devon Still is competing for the starting job opposite J.J. Watt.

2015 starter Jared Crick signed with the Broncos, leaving Still, Christian Covington, and Brandon Dunn as the competitors opposite All-Pro Watt. It's not a particularly fruitful position and involves a lot of dirty work. Still's daughter, Leah, was an inspiring off-field story, but Still didn't crack a roster last season.
Sun, Jun 19, 2016 10:52:00 AM

Texans signed DT Devon Still to a reserve/future contract.

Still spent all of 2015 out of the league. He'll add offseason depth, but is a longshot to make it to training camp.
Wed, Jan 6, 2016 07:31:00 PM

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.
Sat, Sep 5, 2015 12:28:00 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.
Thu, Mar 19, 2015 10:18:00 AM

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.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 07:53:00 PM

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.
Sun, Aug 31, 2014 02:18:00 PM

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.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 02:02:00 PM

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.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 05:37:00 PM

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.
Thu, Nov 7, 2013 09:51:00 AM

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
