Advocate staff photo by SCOTT THRELKELD -- Saints coach Sean Payton is all smiles Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013, before the New Orleans Saints played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

One week after purchasing 100 Devon Still Cincinnati Bengals jerseys, Saints coach Sean Payton talked with the player for the first time on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike” show on Thursday. Payton purchased the jerseys last week in honor of Still’s daughter, Leah, who has Stage 4 pediatric cancer and is at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Bengals announced that all proceeds from the sales of Still’s jersey would go to pediatric cancer research.
