In 2012, the Bengals used a second-round pick on defensive lineman Devon Still. In 2014, they release him.
Per a league source, Still will be among the cuts down to 53 players.
Still appeared in 10 games last season and eight as a rookie. He told PFT Live a month before the 2012 draft that Still, who played at Penn State, is a Steelers fan. The Steelers, along with every other team, will now have a chance to claim him on waivers.
Still’s situation underscores the inherent crapshoot that is the draft. In the same year they ultimately wasted a second-round pick on Still, the Bengals signed an undrafted linebacker named Vontaze Burfict.
