Terry Glenn, Former NFL Player, Dies At 43

Report: Former Cowboys WR Terry Glenn Killed In Early Morning Car Accident

Terry Glenn, former National Football League wide receiver for the Cowboys and the Patriots, has died in a auto accident, according to multiple news reports. Glenn was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he died shortly before 1 a.m. Monday.

Irving PD says Glenn crashed in the 700 block of State Highway 114 after his vehicle left the road and hit a concrete barrier. The woman in the auto was taken to the hospital in an unknown condition. They said they were unable to provide further details at this time.

Glenn played six seasons in New England before being traded to the Green Bay Packers in 2002. He collected nine catches for 253 yards and four touchdowns in a 63-28 blowout win over the Pittsburgh Panthers in 1995.

Glenn, who wore jersey No. 88 for New England, starred at Ohio State and was drafted seventh overall in the first round by the Patriots in 1996 by then-coach Bill Parcells.

Tom Brady reflected on the death of former Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn, calling him a "great player and great teammate".

Beasley remained unfazed though, spreading any blame that was being dished out to the whole team rather than just his 24-year-old quarterback. I loved playing with him.

Despite his tumultuous history with the team, Glenn was "deep-down inside, a good person with good intentions and a good heart", according to Belichick.

He played in Dallas from 2003-2007, recording two more 1,000-yard seasons in 2005 and 2006.
