Terry Glenn, former NFL wide receiver for the Cowboys and the Patriots, has died in a car accident, according to multiple news reports.

The Dallas County medical examiner's office said Glenn died at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas early Monday morning. They said they were unable to provide further details at this time.

An Ohio native, Glenn was an All-American wide receiver at Ohio State. In 1995, he won the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the country’s best wide receiver.

He was drafted in the first round of the 1996 NFL draft by the New England Patriots. He caught 90 passes in his rookie season, at the time that was an NFL record. He made the Pro Bowl in 1999. The Patriots traded Glenn before in 2002 to the Green Bay Packers where he spent one season.

He was traded to the Cowboys for the 2003 season. He had 70 receptions and 6 touchdowns during the 2006 season. He injured his knee next season and retired in 2008.

Former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe, who played with Glenn, paid tribute on Twitter.

Incredibly sad to hear about my buddy Terry Glenn. Overcame a ton of adversity to become an excellent person. May your soul rest in peace my friend.”
