26-Year-Old NFL Linebacker Dies Suddenly

26-Year-Old NFL Linebacker Dies Suddenly

It’s not normal for all these young people to be dying.


I can’t even keep up with all the stories that are coming out. A 19-year-old kid on a Netflix show just died — “cause unknown.” A 17-year-old daughter of a Dem Rep went to sleep and never woke up — “cause unknown.”

A 26-year-old basketball star suddenly died — “cause unknown.”

A 34-year-old bride died in her sleep the night before her wedding — “cause known.”

The list goes on, folks.

There are so many of these “sudden deaths” that a new name has been attached to them: SADS or “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.”

Many young people are dying of overdoses, some suicide, and others, well, we just don’t know what’s going on.

And now, I have another young death to report… this time it’s a 26-year-old NFL player.

He’s dead, and his cause of death is yet again “unknown.”

The New York Post reported that Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has passed away at age 26, the team announced on Wednesday morning.

“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.”


Ferguson, who starred at Louisiana Tech, was a third-round pick by the Ravens in the 2019 NFL Draft.

“It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Baltimore Ravens LB Jaylon Ferguson. The family asks for your prayers and privacy during this trying time,” Ferguson’s agent, Safarrah Lawson, told NFL.com.

Ferguson played in 38 games over three seasons, amassing 62 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks.

None of this is normal.


Now, I don’t pretend to be a doctor or know anything about these people’s medical history, or perhaps this young man had a drug history, I don’t know… but a lot of these deaths are happening at once, so it’d be a good idea for somebody to look at these deaths and see if there are any “commonalities” between them or some of them…

and I think we all know what I mean by that, don’t we?

My heart goes out to this young man’s family, and I hope and pray they get answers and find peace at this very difficult time.

Taken way too soon…
