Devon Still's girlfriend Asha will soon be Mrs. Asha Still. The two got engaged this year and posted a picture of Asha with her engagement ring, all smiles. Devon was cut from the Cincinatti Bengals squad earlier for missing practices and some mini-camp because of the situation with his daughter, but the Bengals organization rehired him to play on the practice squad and therefore not have to travel in order for him to focus on and help pay for her treatments.

Devon's four year-old daughter Leah has cancer, and she is fighting through chemo treatment and trying to beat it. Any way you slice it, the situation is sad and scary. Asha is clearly doing everything she can to support Devon and Leah. They, along with the Cincinatti Bengals, have set up a campaign to raise money for pediatric cancer research. It's hard to imagine how frightening it must be to have a child with stage IV neuroblastoma cancer. Devon's daughter Leah is the child of he and his former girlfriend Channing Smythe, who is also doing everything she can to help and support Leah.

Asha is a hairstylist and is very happy to be engaged to Devon, who has got all kinds of things to work toward right now. He has made the statement before that everything he was doing on the field was to help Leah. It was cool of the Bengals organization to rehire him onto the practice squad. It's a touchy situation to have to let go of a player because he's missing practices to try and attend to his sick daughter. In fact, the Bengals ensured that the NFL health insurance would help shoulder the burden of her treatments, which he's said might go as high as $1,000,000. He's actually on the active roster. Other players must surely understand the intent here, and it's hard to have any resentment. Best wishes for Devon, Asha, and Leah.

Vontaze Burfict's Girlfriend Brandie LaBomme

Last year, Vontaze Burfict's girlfriend Brandie LaBomme accompanied him to a Meels-On-Wheels delivery. I feel like Brandie definitely encouraged it too. Delivering meals to elderly folks is pretty cool if you're a millionaire athlete because you're taking the time out of your day to go and do something genuinely caring and helpful. Would they have done it without the cameras on them? Who cares-- they rule.

So Vontaze's girlfriend Brandie is basically a really young girl who just recently graduated from Arizona State. She's been with Vontaze since January 9, 2011. That's the official date she has locked in on her facebook account. Other than that, she's just a young hot chick who occasionally takes really nice pictures of herself. Seems pretty cool to me. Of course, when really hot curvy women do anything normal, it seems elevated to "cool" status in the eyes of regular schmoes.

Vontaze himself is a beast, as you can imagine. I would not want this guy mad at me on the field or off. He was a Pro-Bowling linebacker last year with-- count'em-- 115 tackles, 3 sacks, and even a touchdown thrown in to boot. I imagine being a 6'1" 250 pound heat-seeking missile allows you to have a teddy bear's personality because everyone is just going to be afraid of you anyway. That's probably how girlfriend Brandie sees it. Brandie actually graduated in September of 2012 with a double major. We won't venture to guess what the subjects are, but Arizona State is not known for its rigor in physics and mathematics. She was recently vacationing in Paris and took a whole bunch of snapshots of the Eiffel Tower, as everyone seems to do when they're standing next to it for the first time. No one seems to understand that there's more pictures of the Eiffel readily available on the internet than there are pictures of cats-- and 90% of them look better than the ones you snap on your phone.

Boomer Esiason's Wife Cheryl Esiason

Boomer Esiason's wife Cheryl Esiason is the Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of the Boomer Esiason Foundation. That's a big deal since the foundation, which raises money to fund research for a cure to cystic fibrosis, has raised over $100 million.

The Boomer Esiason Foundation was started because Boomer and his wife's son, Gunnar, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 2, and ever since the couple has been dedicated to helping fight the disease. Gunnar himself says of the Foundation: "Because of BEF, I have been able to reach out to the CF community and try to reassure everyone who has been affected by this disease that CF isn't the end of the world if they don't want it to be. That has been my main goal." That's pretty cool how people afflicted with the disease can band together and reach out to one another.

Boomer and his wife Cheryl also have a daughter not afflicted by cystic fibrosis, but she is afflicted by super hotness. She's dated Matt Martin of the NY Islanders, and she looks like your classic blonde All-American girl. There's even been coverage of her being on spring break on the internet. That's when you know you've made it as a professional NFL quarterback and then broadcaster-- when your daughter is finally being covered by sleazy internet gossip sites about how her spring break vacation is going. Boomer and wife Cheryl need to give each other high-fives whenever they create that extra little internet tidbit while they're working tirelessly to stop cystic fibrosis. Their son Gunnar now needs to step up his spring-breakingness and do some jello shots or keg stands or something.

Just as a sidenote: Mr. Esiason is regarded as one of the best left-handed quarterbacks in NFL history. That's kind of a backhanded compliment isn't it? He won the 1988 NFL MVP and was one of the biggest and most mobile quarterbacks of the 80's (6'5" and 224 pounds and about 1600 rushing yards).
