Baltimore Ravens LB Jaylon Ferguson Dies At Age 26

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

Ferguson died in Baltimore, according to his agent, Safarrah Lawson. The Baltimore City Police Department said it will be classified as an open questionable death investigation until a cause of death is determined.

"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."

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.

Known as "Sack Daddy" coming out of Louisiana Tech, Ferguson holds the FBS record for career sacks with 45. In three NFL seasons, he totaled 67 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

Ferguson had three children, two daughters and a son, who are all under the age of 5.
