Ravens outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson dies at age 26 – The Mercury News

Ravens outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has died, the team announced Wednesday. He was 26.

“We are profoundly saddened by the tragic passing of Jaylon Ferguson,” the Ravens said in a statement, which did not list a cause of death. “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 was entering the fourth season of his career in Baltimore. A third-round draft pick in 2018, Ferguson set the Football Bowl Subdivision record for career sacks (45) at Louisiana Tech, where he earned the nickname “Sack Daddy.”

Ferguson was a full participant for the first two days of the Ravens’ three-day mandatory minicamp last week before suffering what coach John Harbaugh called a sprained ankle. He was set to report to training camp in late July.

Over 38 games with the Ravens, Ferguson started 10 games and had 4 1/2 sacks, two fumble recoveries and 67 tackles.
