Devon Still eager to shake hands with Sean Payton

Payton WAS what got the ball rolling outside of the Bengals!

CINCINNATI (AP) Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still is eager to shake hands with Saints coach Sean Payton and say thanks in person for buying so many of his jerseys.

Payton bought 100 of Still's jerseys - at $100 apiece - when the lineman and the Bengals were starting a campaign to raise money for pediatric cancer research and treatment. Still's 4-year-old daughter, Leah, started another round of treatment for cancer this week at a Philadelphia hospital.

Still and Payton have talked on the phone. They plan to meet on the field Sunday in New Orleans after the Bengals (5-3-1) play the Saints (4-5) in an important game for both teams.

"He's basically what got the ball rolling with everything," Still said. "A lot of the credit goes to him for what he did.

Re: Devon Still eager to shake hands with Sean Payton

The NFL network the other week did a piece on it in the build up to the Bengals - Browns game and barely said a word about Payton. They spent the whole time saying how classy Robert Kraft was for writing a letter and baring Stills interview he Payton wasnt mentioned. I know he didnt buy the jerseys to look good or too get attention but i must say i was pissed the network failed to say anything about him

I watched the TNF game in Canada and they mentioned Peyton buying the jerseys.

I only watched the build up over here and the only thing i head was Stills mentioned him. Maybe i missed something.

Anyway attention has been brought to a horrible illness and my thoughts go out to anyone affected

It was easy to miss; I wanted to hear if they mentioned Payton.
