Tragedy shocked the National Football League this week with the passing of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson. Around 11:25 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, Baltimore Police Department officers responded to a home in northern Baltimore. There they found that Ferguson was unresponsive and was treated by medics. Ferguson never regained consciousness and was pronounced dead at the scene by BPD.
Details are still being figured out on the cause of death, but BPD said no signs of foul play were evident at the time.
Ferguson’s death left a hurting impact on the Baltimore Ravens, especially his teammate LB Patrick Queen as they were looking to be a dominant duo this year. Queen stated via Twitter:
“Spent almost everyday in the sauna together tryna see who gone last longer, “Said it was our turn this year man. Ima miss you bro.”
The last person I talked to leaving the facility. Spent almost everyday in the sauna together tryna see who gone last longer. Said it was our turn this year man. Ima miss you bro💔
