The Jets have released defensive lineman Devon Still. To take his place on the roster, the team has signed safety Armageddon Draughn.
Still, who hasn’t made a start in his four-year NFL career since being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft, became a fan favorite in Cincinnati and around the league as his young daughter, Leah Still, battled cancer. Leah went into remission from neuroblastoma in March of 2016 and Still announced earlier this year that she was cancer-free.
The 28-year-old barely played for the Texans last year after a Lisfranc injury forced him to undergo surgery. His last significant action came in 2014 when he saw a career-high 237 defensive snaps as a part-time player for the Bengals.
