Former NFL Player Terry Glenn Dies In A Car Accident

Former NFL wide receiver Terry Glenn has died in a car accident in Texas, the Dallas County medical examiner’s office said. He was 43.

The medical examiner’s office said Glenn died at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas early this morning.

He played parts of 12 seasons in the NFL with the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys. He made the Pro Bowl in 1999 as a member of the Patriots.

Terry Glenn’s record day (9 catches, 253 yards, 4 TDs) – Pitt 1995 In the 1995 matchup against the Pitt Panthers, Terry Glenn set an Ohio State record for receiving yards in a single game with 253. This eclipsed Gary Williams’ 220 yards set against Florida State in 1981. While Williams’ mark was since eclipsed by Santonio Holmes in 2004 (against Marshall), Glenn’s receiving tally still stands for tops in a single game performance.

An Ohio native and Ohio State product, Glenn was drafted by the Patriots in the first round in 1996 and was selected to the Pro Bowl three years later. He was traded to the Packers in 2002, then to the Cowboys one year later.

Glenn, who was released by the Cowboys in 2008, finished with 593 catches for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns in his NFL career.
