Former Ravens RB Taliaferro dies at 28

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Lorenzo Taliaferro has died at age 28, the team announced Thursday.

Taliaferro passed away in his hometown of Williamsburg, Va. A family member told WBFF-TV in Baltimore that Taliaferro died of a heart attack.

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Lorenzo Taliaferro,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. “Lorenzo was a kind, smart, respectful and determined young man — someone always committed to his teammates and well-liked by everyone in our organization. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Lorenzo’s family.

“May he rest in peace.”

Taliaferro had 82 carries for 339 yards and five touchdowns in 19 career games over three seasons with the Ravens (2014-16). He was selected by Baltimore in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Coastal Carolina, where he recorded 27 touchdowns and was named the Big South Offensive Player of the Year.

Taliaferro was waived before the start of the 2017 season.
