“We are profoundly saddened by the tragic passing of Jaylon Ferguson. He was a kind, respectful young man with a big smile and infectious personality,” the Ravens announced in part. You can read the full statement below.

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.

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.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and the Baltimore Ravens community during this incredibly difficult time.
