    Konrad Reuland died Monday, weeks after suffering a brain aneurysm.

    Former Jets and Ravens tight end Konrad Reuland died Monday after a weeks-long battle to survive following a brain aneurysm, Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh announced at his post-game press conference. Reuland was 29. 

    "We lost a Raven today,” Harbaugh said after his team's 20-23 loss to the Patriots Monday night. “I just want to offer our condolences to his family. We love Konrad Reuland. Every single guy in the locker room loves him and knows him." 

    Reuland suffered a brain aneurysm Nov. 28 and had surgery the next day. He died in California. 

    The former Stanford and Notre Dame ball player made his NFL debut as an undrafted free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011. Reuland then spent two years with the Jets, where he had 12 catches for 90 yards. 

    Reuland played in four games for the Ravens last season, starting in one, though he didn't have a catch.
