Ravens cornerback Tray Walker has passed away from injuries suffered in a Thursday night accident.

Walker’s agent, Ron Butler, shared the news of his passing late Friday afternoon.

Walker, 23, was in what’s believed to be a dirt bike crash Thursday night in Miami, where he played high school football.

He was a fourth-round pick last season out of Texas Southern who played in eight games in his rookie season.

    Furthermore, I hope that whomever was with him clarifies the situation to the authorities and/or his family. Regardless of the circumstances, his family deserves closure.

    Motorcycles are just too unsafe these days with everyone and their grandma texting away while driving, looking down instead of up. How many drunks do you see on the road swerving around and then you pass them and it’s just some idiot on their phone? I would say kid on their phone but I have been seeing more and more older people doing it.

    I am aware this was a dirt bike but I have seen no details of the crash yet. Was there another driver involved?

    RIP young man and some would say that saying anything more is innappropriate. However, I hope it wasn’t for nothing and some of you youngsters learn from it.

    Motorcycles are like base jumping these days. Just a little too crazy for me with all the terrible drivers around.

    Condolences to his family.

  60. jmethane says: Mar 18, 2016 6:45 PM

    A parent should never outlive their kids. I feel for them.

    Rjm – Patriot fans no doubt. Read some of their class posts in the story on John Harbaugh writing his team a letter.

    First of all my condolences to his family, friends and loved ones. Losing someone at such a young age is absolutely devastating. The only good thing I can think of throughout this entire tragedy is that Walker was able to live out his dream of playing in the NFL. Not all of us will be fortunate enough to do that.

    As for the post above, it was ONE Pats fan, tylawpick6, that made a derogatory comment about Harbaugh’s letter so don’t for one second lump all of us into that category. I looked at every post and he was the only Pats fan on there making comments like that. Like every fan base in football, there are idiots who have no idea when to make certain comments and when to just keep their mouths shut. But please don’t write Patriots “fans” as if it were a whole bunch of people making stupid comments. It was just one idiot that definitely doesn’t speak for me or most Pats fans.

  68. nyneal says: Mar 18, 2016 6:49 PM

    Reports are saying he was riding the dirt bike without a helmet, with no headlight(s), and in the dark. He collided with a Ford Escape.

    If this is true, it makes what happened even more horrible. You have to wonder why he would do such a thing. He paid the ultimate price for it and now his loved ones are the ones who are suffering.

    Thank Goodness he didn’t take anyone else’s life.

    This goes beyond if you’re a Raven’s fan this is a human life the most precious thing in the world. If you are giving thumbs down to this post you can’t be happy with yourself. You should be ashamed and you need prayer as well as the family and friends of Tray Walker… R. I. P. And my condolences to family friends and teammates

  99. drgarro says: Mar 18, 2016 7:10 PM

    Truly heartbreaking. I remember reading last year, when he was drafted, that his father had passed away recently and he dedicated his first season to his memory. And from that moment I rooted for him. I’m just shocked and I can’t imagine what his family must be going through right now. May he rest in peace.

  100. rixter59 says: Mar 18, 2016 7:11 PM

    That headline hurt. I lost a friend to a motorcycle accident last year. He had finally gotten his dream job as a motorcycle mechanic. He always wore his helmet and a nice one that he took inside everywhere he went. He just lost it in a freak thing and wiped into a truck in the other lane on his way to work.

  103. jessethegreat says: Mar 18, 2016 7:16 PM

    I didn’t suggest Bridgewater because that wouldn’t be fair to him.

    TONY STEWART from NASCAR got messed up on an off road deal and is missing races. This man died.
    Don’t just jump on something and say “I can do this”.
    Machine will always beat Man, when a man without proper training pushes Machine to it limits or is not really experienced.
    Every year people die when a jet skier gets out on the water and SLAMS into a boat while either not paying attention or just doesn’t know that their are no brakes.

  124. guyljr says: Mar 18, 2016 7:47 PM

    Getting caught up in the downvotes is like yelling at a retarded kid for picking his nose at the table… He’s just gonna giggle and flick it at you. Ignore it

  126. chitown56 says: Mar 18, 2016 7:53 PM

    Sad to see such a young kid go, I hate to read articles about this.

    Now about these morons thumbing down these posts, honestly I’m not surprised. This is how the world is now especially in the states and it’s pathetic. Everybody cares about themselves makes me sick to my stomach. This is what happens when parents to spank their kids, or even discipline their kids. I served two deployments overseas in the Marines and I understand how it goes to lose somebody that young and I have a better appreciation for life, but kids these days have no clue what life means at all. It’s mommy buy me this or daddy this kid was being mean to me. Sorry for the rant but I hate these kids in this generation. When I was I kid and I had a problem with another kid my dad told me to go handle it like a man, sure I got my ass kicked a couple of times but I sure did learn a lesson.

    Sterelers nation morns with you Ravens fans there is no room for hatred at a time like this.Condolences to his family.

    God bless Tray, his family and loved ones. RIP

  129. BobbyHanks63 says: Mar 18, 2016 8:01 PM

    The thumbs down is so depressing, now we know some of those among us are so sick, just full of hate. Rip Tray, we never know what life holds for us. May your memory live on and on.

    To his family I’m sure the majority of PFT feel so very sorry for your loss in this tragic occurrence, may the following days be one of reflection and love for Tray from all of your family and friends. Peace and blessings be with Tray forever.

  130. doggeatdogg says: Mar 18, 2016 8:01 PM

    Tragic. RIP to the young man and condolescense to the family.

    MIKE FLORIO AND PFT STAFF, PLEASE DISABLE DOWN VOTES FOR STORIES LIKE THIS. OK. YOU KNOW THIS IS AN ISSUE.

  134. packertruth says: Mar 18, 2016 8:04 PM

    Sometimes I miss life before the internet more than others. People used to have the class to allow people to grieve. And be more aware they don’t always have to share, or even form, an opinion.

    Prayers and empathy for Mr. Walker’s family and friends.

  135. catquick says: Mar 18, 2016 8:04 PM

    Forever with JESUS

  136. dcmidnight says: Mar 18, 2016 8:10 PM

    Initial reporting this morning indicate they were looking for a Patriots player as a witness – whatever happened to that, there was no follow up.

  137. bkg63 says: Mar 18, 2016 8:12 PM

    RIP Mr. Walker and condolences to his friends and loved ones. Such a tragedy.

    Also, calling out the trolls who have nothing better to do than thumbs-down condolences…..Pathetic.

  138. karlpilkington says: Mar 18, 2016 8:13 PM

    Ugh only 23 years old. Gone to soon. Hug and kiss your loved ones tonight. You never know when it’s your time. RIP

    Sincere condolences from the WHO DAT Nation to Tray Walker’s family, friends, team mates and the Ravens fans! This a terrible tragedy and a life full of potential snuffed out way too soon. Prayers for peace and comfort.

    To the idiots who are down voting this jmb82’s post. BLACK is the symbol for TRAGEDY. google it morons! you will find a black ribbon. it is the ribbon for death. RIP so sad when young people die. all that potential…

  143. wallabear says: Mar 18, 2016 8:39 PM

    No reports on whether the kid was wearing a helmet or not. Just 23 years-old. Rest-in-Peace.

  144. itswhereyourmindsat says: Mar 18, 2016 8:39 PM

    Apparently he was riding without headlights or a helmet. Still sad but c’mon man. I’m guessing alcohol has something to do with this

    Heart Felt condolences to his family, friends, teammates, the entire Ravens team and their fan base. Words are never good enough to help with your loss and for that reason all I can say is I’m sorry.

  148. lingsun54 says: Mar 18, 2016 8:42 PM

    I feel bad for the guy who died along with his family and friends.

    I’m 56. I’ve had a number of close calls over the years involving motorcycles. Usually they happen just after sunset or when you’re looking into the setting sun when you’re waiting to turn left.

  149. usdcoyotesfan says: Mar 18, 2016 8:43 PM

    What’s pathetic is that some people’s lives are so negatively affected by their online posts getting a handful of thumbs down.

    It’s Friday night, people. Go have a beer with some friends.

  150. lx2016 says: Mar 18, 2016 8:49 PM

    Very sad. Heart goes out the family and friends.

    Now, why are there thumbs down on all of the positive comments? Don’t tell me it’s because of a rivalry. That would be way to immature.

  151. whodat5150 says: Mar 18, 2016 8:50 PM

    My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. But as some have pointed out earlier; in this forum and elsewhere, this was totally avoidable. I’m a libertarian and believe that adults should be free to make decisions that don’t adversely effect others. I live in TX and see NUMEROUS folks riding w/o helmets, which is their right. Helmets and seatbelts save lives and SHOULD always be used. Just because a person CAN do something, doesn’t mean they should. While a decision may not effect me or mine, it can effect their families and loved ones. Fortunately, Ben Roethlisberger walked away from his motorcycle accident w/o a helmet but Tray Walker wasn’t as fortunate. Nonetheless, I am praying for Walker and his family.

  152. vegaskid21 says: Mar 18, 2016 8:52 PM

    It’s obvious that all the thumbs down are from people with fat thumbs who actually meant to hit the thumbs up button. My fat thumbs are guilty of this. If a person has so much hate within them to push the thumbs down button over a simple Rest in Peace comment, then you really should get a clue, or have somebody explain life to you. We as fans of football should pray or do whatever you do to show respect to this young man’s family. They’re should NOT be this much hate.

  153. milehighdonkeys says: Mar 18, 2016 8:53 PM

    So sorry.

  154. truthinesshurts says: Mar 18, 2016 8:55 PM

    Very dsad. Rest in peace.

    P.S. I hope this isn’t a distraction but I’m hoping some of those thumbs down were just fat finger mistakes on phones…no normal person would do that intentionally.

  155. dimi1919 says: Mar 18, 2016 8:57 PM

    All you people putting a thumbs down on these RIP posts should stop hiding behind your keyboards in your mom’s basement a take a trip to the Ravens locker room and tell all the fellow players what you did. Let’s see how that goes. And I’m a steelers fan.

  156. levanderwilliams says: Mar 18, 2016 9:05 PM

    Very sad. This brings me back to the tragic story of the late great Jerome Brown. Rest in peace.

  157. getyourownname says: Mar 18, 2016 9:11 PM

    Props to fans of all teams posting here who get it.

    But remember, each person voting thumb down has the same vote as each of everyone else. And we wonder why our government stinks.

  158. staffordsyear says: Mar 18, 2016 9:17 PM

    Sad deal. Condolences to his family.

  159. nobleeding says: Mar 18, 2016 9:23 PM

    This is very sad. I hope his family can be at peace. I hope the NFL will let the Ravens honor him next season if they request it.

  160. GoodellMustGo says: Mar 18, 2016 9:31 PM

    I don’t exactly like the Ravens… but hate to see this kind of news. RIP and condolences to his family and teammates.

    As for the thumbs downs….stop drawing attention to them and they will stop. Whine about them more and you’ll get more. Welcome to the world of anonymous internet message boards.:)

  161. motleytrap says: Mar 18, 2016 9:45 PM

    Sorry to hear that. RIP.

    And the people thumbing down posts are just doing it to bother you, because you keep complaining about it.

    If your “score” isn’t 126-0, who cares? Condolence messages aren’t supposed to be an ego trip.

  162. shiz1156 says: Mar 18, 2016 9:57 PM

  165. Calasade says: Mar 18, 2016 10:06 PM

    May he RIP. A tragic death indeed. Some would say foolish due to the circumstances. Not me. He was doing something he enjoyed and bad things occurred. It happens. Better to go out having fun than live a life within a protective bubble too afraid to take the slightest risk.

  166. lukedunphysscienceproject says: Mar 18, 2016 10:06 PM

    I would love it if one, just one, of the people who are thumb’s downing the condolence posts would have the cojones to post an explanation. I know they won’t, and I know why.

  167. flaccodelic says: Mar 18, 2016 10:08 PM

    Ultimately, there is one team: humans.

    You’re either with us, or you’re thumbing down sincere
    condolences just because you think your team allegiances or your religious beliefs trump actual human emotion. Well, they don’t, and if this is you then you need to reconsider your own humanity but I won’t hold my breath.

    RIP Tray Walker, regardless of team colors

  168. bradygirl12 says: Mar 18, 2016 10:10 PM

    Awful. Just awful. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace,Tray.

  169. moun10mama says: Mar 18, 2016 10:15 PM

    that news brought tears to my eyes. a young life filled with promise gone way too soon… RIP Tray Walker

  170. swineflooo says: Mar 18, 2016 10:37 PM

    Rip, so young.

    I also dont know why people are putting what fan base they are from. Losing a life is more important then letting us know what team
    U cheer for.

  171. jmethane says: Mar 18, 2016 10:42 PM

    I like the fat thumbs idea and I have also been guilty of this a few times. But I’m thinking it’s much more likely the 16 year olds and under.

    No concept of life or death yet, no consequences for any of their horrible actions on the internet. They think it’s funny and Snicker when they upset people. They cheat/hack in online video games to make people mad because they have no skill and would otherwise be completely unnoticed.

    They are nothing more than trolls and life is going to kick their butt at some point do not worry about that. That’s what life does if you live long enough. Older people know that and have lost many others around them already.

    All I can do about it is make dang sure that my young son doesn’t end up like that himself. I agree with the poster above me that thinks that the PC World around us and lack of discipline has a lot to do with this issue.

  172. stevegrogannakedbootleg says: Mar 18, 2016 10:50 PM

    There are not people voting down instead it is one person which should give you more faith in humanity .

    My condolences to Tray Walker’s family, and friends, extended as well! Very Sad…I did not want to hear this outcome! P.S. – People…Ignore these idiots thumb downs, this is about the deceased. 😦

    Condolences to Ravens and/or Walker fans that post on PFT and read the comments.

    To those bitching about the thumbs up/thumbs down know that it only shows how shallow you are to care about the thumbs on a post.

    WHO CARES! Get over it, this man lost his life way too young. That’s all that matters. Not whether or not your disgusted about someone else opinion of a post on a message board. Get over yourself.

  184. hrmlss says: Mar 19, 2016 1:25 AM

    Condolences to the family. Glad PFT finally manned up and hid the negative thumbs downs from the family. The only way PFT could do better would be to make it so you could hover over the thumb down to see who voted, and over the thumbs up if interested.

    ……too young and talented. Here is a man who graduated college, impressed NFL scouts and coaches to get drafted into his chosen profession, was liked by his teammates ,and made a mark for himself by the AGE of 23. That is some serious achoplishments. You have to be impressed by his drive and love of life. RIP young man. My condolences to his family and friends.

  193. bpacha76 says: Mar 19, 2016 4:43 AM

    RIP Mr Walker. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and friends. You know I personally DO NOT like to see folks riding motorcycles ,especially without helmets, because IMHO they’re death traps. Not the time nor place I know. Just please if you’re gonna ride one please be careful. I HAD a good friend who rode bikes WITHOUT a helmet. I asked him what did he have against them. His answered made me smh. He said helmets made him look “UNCOOL.” I remember telling him something cheesy like from a after school special. I told him…” Wearing a helmet MIGHT make you look uncool, but if you get into a wreck without one you’ll not only be COOL but laying in the morgues freezer you’ll be so COLD you’ll almost be frozen!!”
    When I said that I had no idea less than 2 weeks later ,12 days to be exact, those words would be proven to be correct. My friend of 13 years,really more of a brother, got into a wreck after losing control. He hit his head and went into a coma and never regained consciousness. He died of head trauma he received in the crash. I can’t say with a helmet he’d have survived but I do know having it on couldn’t have hurt. So please be careful.

  194. sirtacklesalot says: Mar 19, 2016 4:56 AM

    All you people, intentionally putting thumbs down, are behaving dishonorably, and without any class at all. Someone lost their life here, unless you have condolences or prayers, please get out of here.

    So sad. Prayers to his family for this tragedy.

    The “thumbs down” for the comments doesn’t surprise me because there are always some some classless people. What surprises me on this post is the quantity of thumbs down on the RIP comments. It’s disturbing, actually.

  197. lflib69 says: Mar 19, 2016 7:31 AM

    To thumb down any condolences is pretty ignorant…some people should stop puffing

  198. paulrevereshorse1775 says: Mar 19, 2016 7:51 AM

    Sad news. I was hoping Tray would recover. Family, friends and teammates of Tray, you all have my sympathy

  199. holeinone09 says: Mar 19, 2016 7:51 AM

    So many thumbs down counts, but NOT ONE of them has the guts to actually do a post about their comments and put their ID out there for everyone to see who is actually capable of making negative comments about someone’s death. And that tells everyone else enough all they need to know about the thumbs down crowd. Losers in their mommy’s basement with the lights on.

  200. robadat says: Mar 19, 2016 8:10 AM

    RIP, Tray.

    My thoughts are with the family, friends and teammates of Tray. It is always much harder to cope with a death when the person is young and healthy.

  201. vikingforlife says: Mar 19, 2016 8:23 AM

    This is so very sad. A young man lost his life last night. HIS LIFE. If you haven’t read John Harbaugh’s letter to his team please read it, if you have, please re-read it. He knew at that time how grave the situation was. He also said some things that everyone could use, not just football players. Life is too short to be petty, people! We all love football and there are 32 teams from which to choose. We love and respect the game and our players. We lost one of OUR OWN last night. This is the time to send out condolences to Tray’s family. Be safe out there.

  202. gibbskins9 says: Mar 19, 2016 9:02 AM

    All you people putting a thumbs down on these RIP posts should stop hiding behind your keyboards in your mom’s basement a take a trip to the Ravens locker room and tell all the fellow players what you did. Let’s see how that goes. And I’m a steelers fan.

    AMEN to the post above, you peeps should be ASHAMED

  203. gibbskins9 says: Mar 19, 2016 9:05 AM

    This is the problem in society today no regard for human life makes no difference race, color or religion as 23 year old lost his life he was 23 we need to start respecting EVERYONE AND LIFE AGAIN

  204. bobnelsonjr says: Mar 19, 2016 9:52 AM

    Learn some lessons from this man’s death:

    1) When riding on city streets, wear a helmet.

    2) When riding on the street at night, do it on a bike with a headlight.

    3) Obey the traffic laws.

    4) Getting an education is important. It could save your life.

  205. concretejimmy52 says: Mar 19, 2016 9:54 AM

    This is by far the worst news you can hear in the off season. The kind that you never want to hear. RIP Tray.

  206. nflpoker says: Mar 19, 2016 10:02 AM

    RIP Tray.

    To the ones giving thumbs down, I hope it doesn’t happen to you or your family. But there is always karma.

    PFT should disable the thumbs down here. I have never seen so may for a story like this. Pathetic.

  207. firedog784 says: Mar 19, 2016 10:16 AM

    Forget about all these thumbs down. Who cares? The people that are doing them are getting their desired affect by the complaints which is the only reason they’re acting like a-holes. Stop giving them what they want.

    The most important thing in these posts to this tragedy are the words of expression felt by all fans across the league and there have been some wonderful sharing of thoughts. That being said:

    Rest in peace Tray Walker. We all mourn with your family today and may they feel some comfort and support by the outpouring of grief that they are hearing from the many great fans around the NFL this morning. God bless.

  208. chuckxx says: Mar 19, 2016 10:45 AM

    Iam an old guy and to me this is an Incredibly Sad Story. It just shows you how careful in life you have to be. He had such a bright and fantastic life and career in front of him. Really a very sad story. Hopefully others can learn from it.

  209. ravens2xworldchamps says: Mar 19, 2016 11:04 AM

    RIP Tray.

    Ravens fan here,

    Tray wasn’t a household name yet, but I remember when we drafted him in the fourth round last year, I thought to myself, ‘maybe this guy could play the other CB spot across from jimmy Smith in the future’
    Tray’s long frame showed a lot of promise, coupled with the fact he was a Leo, a confident athlete who showed a lot of energy in preseason.

    RIP #25

  210. darkneptune73 says: Mar 19, 2016 11:06 AM

    Serious Question:

    Why do you thumbs down comments wishing sympathy? Do you have no morals? Do you have a soul?

  211. latenightroach says: Mar 19, 2016 11:27 AM

    I just don’t understand all of you “Thumbs Downers”. What is it with you people?

    Haven’t you ever grieved over someone or offered comfort to someone who has? All the more it solidifies my sentiments that humans are the lowest of species on earth.

    My sympathy goes out to all of those who are grieving for this young man. Rest assured he’s in a better place and far away from the kind of losers who troll around on PFT.

  212. jonathankrobinson424 says: Mar 19, 2016 12:52 PM

    ……..for the numbnuts that enjoy pressing thumbs down on every single post to get a rise out of people……good job….GOD IS WATCHING!……

  213. ljstud1o says: Mar 19, 2016 2:10 PM

    Motorcycles are incredibly dangerous, that’s why I sold mine after riding it occasionally for 3 years. They are even more dangerous when you are not wearing a helmet as this young man was not when he hit the SUV and died of head injuries…

  214. Patch24680 says: Mar 19, 2016 2:14 PM

    Condolences to his family and friends. Godspeed, Tray……RIP.

    Appreciate the condolences from all the fans of other teams.
    Sad times in Raven nation. I hope a tragedy like this doesn’t befall any other teams out there.
    My heart hurts for his family.
    RIP Tray.
