Stanford grad Reuland dies of brain aneurysm


Stanford grad Konrad Reuland, who played with several NFL teams, died Monday from a brain aneurysm. He was 29.

Baltimore coach John Harbaugh announced the news following the Ravens' 30-23 loss to the New England Patriots on Monday night.

"I just want to offer condolences to his family," Harbaugh said. "We love Konrad Reuland. Every single guy in that locker room loves him who knows him."

The Stanford football team tweeted "We have lost a bright light in our beloved brother, Konrad Reuland. His memory and spirit will never leave us. We love you."

Reuland, a tight end, was a practice squad player most of his professional career. In 2012, he caught 11 passes for 83 yards with the New York Jets.

He's also been with the San Francisco 49ers, the Indianapolis Colts and the Ravens.

Reuland, from Mission Viejo, suffered the brain aneurysm last month and underwent surgery. He had been in critical condition ever since.

Reuland transferred to Stanford following a brief stay at Notre Dame. He was joined by his brother, Warren.
