Wednesday was a tragic day for Ravens fans everywhere.

We first woke up to the shocking news that 26-year old Defensive Lineman Jaylon Ferguson had passed. The Baltimore Ravens organization eloquently and thoughtfully made the announcement:

Not long after, legendary Raven and fan favorite Tony Siragusa himself passed at the age of 55.

As the second post notes, it was a “tremendously sad day” in Baltimore, regardless of fandom. For Ravens Flock specifically, it’s hard to frame the day better than Gerry Sandusky does here:

An outpour of support for those close to Ferguson and Siragusa came throughout the day, but I did want to highlight Tony’s beautiful expression of condolences.

I couldn’t have put it better myself, and I know all of the RSR Family echoes his sentiments. While it’s always special to see the NFL community come together in such moments, I believe the best judgement of a player and person is the way players within that community convey their feelings about him.

These two unexpected deaths are examples of that.

Ferguson was a family man, a promising player, and by all accounts, a person who was loved.

Siragusa, a member of the 2000 Super Bowl Champion Ravens, had a profound impact on those he touched, as well.

Though too young to remember too much of Siragusa’s career, his involvement in the Baltimore did not cease when his time on the Ravens came to an end. I will always remember the incredible personality that Goose was, each moment a clear indication of the person he was, too. RIP Tony Siragusa.

Similarly, I will always remember following Ferguson in college and the excitement I had when he was selected by Baltimore. Ferguson was so talented as a player, but after seeing pictures and clips of him with his family, it’s clear how much he loved his family. He will be missed dearly by all. RIP Jaylon Ferguson.

There’s not much else to add today. But if a reminder was needed, always keep Garrett Downing’s last sentence here close to mind.
