July 1st, 2022 by WCBC Radio

According to the medical examiner, the cause of death for Baltimore Ravens' outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has been revealed. Ferguson died from the combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine, according to Bruce Goldfrab, a spokesman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. WBAL reports  Goldfrab said the manner of death has been ruled an accident. “Our priority is focused on the man Jaylon was and the positive impact he made on so many as a father, son, fiancé, friend and teammate," reads a statement from Patrick Gleason, Vice President of Public Relations." It would be inappropriate for us to comment further while we continue to support his family and teammates, who are mourning the tragic loss of a loved one and will celebrate his life tomorrow.” Ferguson was found dead last week inside a home on Ilchester Avenue in North Baltimore. His funeral will be held this weekend in Louisiana
