Former NFL Tight End Konrad Reuland Dies At 29 After Brain Aneurysm

Former journeyman NFL tight end Konrad Reuland passed away Monday after suffering a brain aneurysm on November 28.

Konrad Reuland, an NFL tight end who spent five seasons in the league with four teams, died Monday after suffering brain aneurysm last month. He underwent brain surgery on November 29.

The 6-foot-5 tight end spent two seasons at Notre Dame (2006-2007) before transferring to Stanford to play alongside future Colts teammate Andrew Luck.

Reuland signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2011 as an undrafted free agent where he spent just one season. Shortly after, he joined the Jets for two seasons before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He then spent two seasons with the Ravens before getting signed to the Colts practice squad this year. He was cut on August 29.

Reuland recorded 12 receptions for 90 yards during his time in the NFL.

Various players and teams have been expressing their condolences on Twitter:

Our thoughts and prayers are with Reuland's friends and family during this difficult time.
