Players all around the NFL showed support for the tough battle a member of their family was going through, and even athletes in other sports reached out to help.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James still has been there for Devon and Leah, even giving a Christmas present this year to the young girl. A signed jersey of LeBron’s with the words “To Leah: You are my hero” was the gift.
Still was released before the season began by the Bengals, but he remained classy thanking the team for always supporting him and his family.
Recently for Still, he also worked out for the Denver Broncos, but was not signed. There is no word if Houston plans to sign the defensive tackle.
