Former NFL wide receiver Terry Glenn died in a motor vehicle accident. Glenn, who caught Tom Brady’s first touchdown pass as a member of the New England Patriots, died on Monday near Dallas, Texas.
Glenn was involved in a one-vehicle, rollover accident, which also left his fiancée injured. Glenn was 43-years-old.
He died shortly after 1 pm after being transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. The accident happened at 12:18 CST eastbound on Highway 114.
The Irving Police Department are investigating the accident. Since his retirement, he has lived in the Dallas area. As he was driving, the car reportedly left the highway, struck a concrete barrier and rolled over.
Glenn was ejected from the vehicle.
Chelsey Jones, the Irving Police Department spokeswoman, said that his fiancée was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. No further information has been released on her condition.
It’s also not clear if both were wearing a seatbelt or not.
“I was pretty close with Terry,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said. “I think he was, deep down inside a good person with good intentions and a good heart.”
Glenn began his career with the Patriots, where he played from 1996 through 2001. He then joined the Green Bay Packers for a season in 2002.
The final four years of his career, he spent with the Dallas Cowboys.
“Terry was someone that we all enjoyed very much in his time with the Cowboys,” owner Jerry Jones said. “He was a gentle and kindhearted young man. Too young and too soon.”
In a 137 games, Glenn had 593 receptions for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns.
“Loved this man,” former Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe said. “My son asked me a decade ago who my favorite receiver ever was because he wanted that jersey for Christmas. He got a Terry Glenn jersey from Santa. TG overcame horrible adversity to become a really good man. May your soul rest in peace my friend.”
