Baltimore LB Jaylon Ferguson dies at 26

Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has died at the age of 26, the team announced Wednesday. 

"We are profoundly saddened by the tragic passing of Jaylon Ferguson," the team said in a statement. "He was a kind, respectful young man  

with a big smile and infectious personality. We express our heartfelt condolences to Jaylon's family and friends as we mourn a life lost much too soon." 

At approximately 11:25 p.m. Tuesday, Baltimore Police said officers responded to a home in the northern district  

of the city, where they found Ferguson unresponsive and being treated by medics. Ferguson never regained 

consciousness and was pronounced dead on the scene by medics, according to police. 

Baltimore Police said there were no signs of trauma found or foul play suspected at this time.  

Ferguson's body was transported to the medical examiner's office, where a cause of death will be determined. 

Ferguson, a third-round pick by the Ravens in 2019, had participated in all of the team's offseason practices this year. 

It appeared that he had worked hard to be in the best shape of his career, dropping a significant amount of weight.
