WE NOW KNOW THE CAUSE OF DEATH OF RAVENS' LB JAYLON FERGUSON

JUL 1, 2022  (14H28)      V. CARBONNEAU
ESPN Staff Writer Jamison Hensley reported that Ravens LB Jaylon Ferguson died from the combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine, according to medical examiners on Friday.

Ferguson was 26 at the time. This is such sad news. He will always be remembered in the world of football as a great player, and an even better human being.

As we reported, Ferguson was found unresponsive at a Baltimore residence on June 21 and, according to cops, never regained consciousness. He was pronounced dead by medics on the scene. Baltimore Police said that there were no signs of trauma found and that no foul play was suspected.

"Our priority is focused on the man Jaylon was and the positive impact he made on so many as a father, son, fiancé, friend and teammate," the Ravens said in a statement issued Friday. "It would be inappropriate for us to comment further while we continue to support his family and teammates, who are mourning the tragic loss of a loved one and will celebrate his life [Saturday]."

Ferguson's funeral will be held Saturday in Bains, Louisiana, where he grew up.

Jaylon was selected by the Ravens in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft ... and played in 38 total games for the team the last three seasons, tallying 4.5 sacks and 67 tackles.

He had previously starred at Louisiana Tech, where he set the NCAA record for most career sacks.
