According to the post, “Deputies were dispatched to the 100 Block of Windsor Lane earlier today, December 16, 2020, at approximately 3:07 pm, for a call of someone needing medical attention.” “The patient was taken to a nearby hospital by medical personnel, where he subsequently passed away.”

Although a heart attack was the cause of his death, Bruce Cunningham, the sports director of WBFF-TV, reported that it was an official cause of death. The journalist received the news from a family member.

Taliaferro was a fullback for the Baltimore Ravens from 2014 to 2016, when he was cut in 2017 after being selected in the fourth round of the draft. During that time, he gained 339 yards of rushing and scored five touchdowns. Despite the fact that injuries ended his playing career early, he had several career highlights, including being named Coastal Carolina University’s 2013 Big South Conference Offensive Player of the Year and a finalist for the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

The Taliaferro family received condolences from the Baltimore Ravens. After three seasons as his coach, head coach John Harbaugh released a statement featuring a picture of Taliaferro in uniform.

We are very sorry to hear of Lorenzo Taliaferro’s passing,” Harbaugh, 58, said at the outset.
According to Harbaugh, Taliaferro was “a kind, smart, respectful, and determined young man — someone who is well-liked by everyone in our organization and is always committed to his teammates.”
