Former NFL wide receiver Terry Glenn died in a auto crash in Texas, according to reports and friends of the WR. Glenn was pronounced dead shortly after midnight at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

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.

Glenn was the seventh overall pick in the 1996 NFL draft after a brilliant final year of college football at Ohio State.

During his career, Glenn compiled 593 receptions for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns. He caught 329 passes for 4,669 yards and 22 touchdowns with the Patriots. Five years later, on October 14, 2001, Glenn caught Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's first career touchdown pass. His biography on 83 Kids says that, as an "adopted foster kid" he was "bouncing around from home to home and not knowing where the next meal was coming from, Terry became very reclusive".

Glenn played for the Buckeyes from 1993-1995 and had a breakout season in his third year. We scored on the next play and ended up winning 28-3. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his loved ones and all of the people who were touched by his life". Some of Glenn's former teammates have also offered their condolences over the accident on social media.
