It’s crazy how fast a life could be taken from us with in a blink of an eye. Konrad Reuland, a former Jets and Ravens tight end, suffered from a brain aneurysm at the age of 29 on November 28, 2016. He underwent surgery shortly after declaring him brain dead. He was extremely uncomfortable and fighting for his life for two weeks after this tragic outburst resulting in his death December 12, 2016. Konrad was a student and athlete at the University of Notre Dame and later transferred to Stanford University to continue on with his career as an athlete. While attending college, Konrad was unfortunately not drafted, but after graduating he signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011. In 2013 he was signed with the Jets but on a reserve list due to a knee injury that occurred. November 14, 2014 to November 18, 2015 Konrad was signed on and off of the Ravens practice team consistently. Then December 8, 2015 he was promoted to the active roster which his career took off since. Konrad wasn’t just a football player, he became a brother to many and a son to his coaches.
Konrad made in impact on many. As you can see, Konrad was able to be a part of multiple teams gaining family from each and every one. This sudden death has affected many people, his team mates, family and coach John Harbaugh. His name and number 88 will be remembered forever. Please take a moment and pray sending our condolences to the Reuland family. Rest in Peace Reuland, you will forever be remembered and missed.
