Ferguson’s death was announced by the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday. He was 26.
“We are profoundly saddened by the tragic passing of Jaylon Ferguson,” the team said. “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.”
The team did not release any details around Ferguson’s passing, but in September 2021, coach John Harbaugh said 90% of the Ravens were already shot up with synthetic mRNA.
Ferguson had three children with his girlfriend Donni Smith, who is a catering chef. She confirmed in September 2021 that Ferguson was in fact vaccinated.
Ferguson and Smith have a son and two daughters.
Baltimore police say the Louisiana native was found unresponsive with no signs of foul play or trauma.
Ferguson was a standout linebacker at Louisiana Tech. He was named the 2018 Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year and was a first-team all-conference selection in 2017 and 2018. He recorded the most sacks in NCAA FBS history with 45.
He’s vaccinated. Next
