FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens say former tight end Konrad Reuland has died at the age of 29.

Coach John Harbaugh opened his post-game news conference after Monday night’s loss to the New England Patriots by announcing Reuland’s death.

Reuland was attempting to recover from a brain aneurism. A Ravens spokesman says Reuland’s mother informed the team that he died Monday.

“We love Konrad Reuland,” Harbaugh said. “Every single guy in that locker room loves him that knows him.”

Harbaugh offered his condolences to Reuland’s family and quoted from the Biblical book of Psalms, saying: “God is our refuge and our strength.”

Besides the Ravens, Reuland spent time with the 49ers, Colts and Jets. He played in 30 games total over three seasons, catching 12 passes for 90 yards.
