Terry Glenn, the former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, was killed early Monday morning in a vehicle wreck in Irving, TX. Glenn was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he died shortly before 1 a.m. Monday.
Multiple sources reported Glenn's death around 10:40 a.m. Monday, and it was later confirmed by the Irving Fire Department to be the result of a single roll-over crash on Highway 114 at Walnut Hill.
Former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe, who was Glenn's teammate with the Patriots and Cowboys, said Glenn turned a corner as he got older.
The seventh overall pick in the 1996 draft by New England, Glenn played 12 seasons in the National Football League - six with the Patriots, one with the Packers and five with the Cowboys.
Terry also famously caught Tom Brady's very first TD pass in 2001. It will always be remembered for the fog that filled Foxboro Stadium that day.More news: Woman with 'Fuck Trump' truck decal adds sheriff's name after being arrested
He played one season there before the Packers traded him to the Cowboys, reuniting with Parcells. "Praying for his family", tweeted offensive lineman Damien Woody, who previously played alongside Glenn in New England.
