The Baltimore Ravens fought hard to get back into their game against the Patriots last night, but were ultimately unsuccessful as they went down 30-23.
Following the game, John Harbaugh opened up his press conference with some truly sad news, saying that former Ravens tight end Konrad Neuland had sadly passed away.
Neuland was just 29-years-old. He suffered a brain aneurysm.

"We lost a Raven today," Harbaugh said, via ESPN. "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 finished off as saying in what must have been a very emotional moment.

Reuland signed with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2011 out of Stanford. From there, he played for the New York Jets in 2012 and 2013 before suffering a knee injury. He signed with the Colts in 2014 but was let go before ever taking the field.
The tight end spent the next year on the Ravens as part of the active roster and practice squad before spending training camp in 2016 with the Colts. He was released before the season.
Reuland played 30 games for New York and Baltimore from 2012-15 and tallied 12 career catches for 90 yards. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time.
