This is obviously an incredibly tragic and heartbreaking situation. Young men aren’t supposed to be dying. It’s just not supposed to happen, and Ferguson passing away at the age of 26 is shocking.
The fact we don’t even know what happened makes the whole situation that much worse.
Terrible news: #Ravens LB Jaylon Ferguson has died at just 26 years old.
Statement from agent Safarrah Lawson:
“It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Baltimore Ravens LB Jaylon Ferguson. The family asks for your prayers and privacy during this trying time.”

Ferguson should have had decades of life ahead of him. He should have had several more years playing football in front of him. Instead, it’s all over at the incredibly young age of 26.
There’s simply no way to say it other than it’s incredibly sad.
