Konrad Reuland, Former Ravens and Jets Tight End, Dies at 29 After Brain Aneurysm

Former Baltimore Ravens tight end Konrad Reuland died Monday, coach John Harbaugh announced in opening his postgame news conference.

Reuland was 29. He suffered a brain aneurysm Nov. 28 and had surgery a day later.

“We lost a Raven today,” Harbaugh said. “I just want to offer condolences to his family. We love Konrad Reuland. Every single guy in the locker room loves him.”

Harbaugh then recited a short psalm.

“That’s for Konrad,” he said.

Reuland played four games for the Ravens last season, starting in one. He didn’t have a catch for Baltimore.

In two seasons with the New York Jets (2012-13), Reuland had 12 catches for 90 yards and no touchdowns.

He spent two seasons at Notre Dame (2006-07) before transferring to Stanford, where he finished out his college career before going undrafted in 2011. The Cardinal tweeted their condolences Monday night.

Reuland’s death is the latest tragedy in a difficult year for the Ravens. Second-year cornerback Tray Walker died in a dirt bike accident in March, and longtime defensive line coach Clarence Brooks died in September after a battle with esophageal cancer.
