Former Cowboy Terry Glenn killed in Irving car accident

DALLAS - Former Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn was killed in a car accident late Sunday night, according to Irving police.

He was taken to Parkland Hospital in Dallas, where he died around midnight, according to the Dallas County medical examiner. The circumstances surrounding the crash were not immediately known.

Glenn spent the final five years of his career with the Cowboys, notching two 1,000-yard seasons in Dallas. He was named the Cowboys’ offensive MVP in 2005.

He missed the first 15 games of his final season in 2007 following knee surgery.

Glenn, 43, also played six seasons with the New England Patriots and one for the Green Bay Packers during his 12-year career. He caught a career-high 90 passes in his rookie campaign in 1996, helping the Patriots win an AFC title.

The 1999 Pro Bowler totaled 593 catches for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns in the NFL.

In 2016, Glenn founded 83Kids, a nonprofit serving foster children. His LinkedIn profile indicates he was working for the foundation and as president and CEO of a company called 83 Construction. He lived in Lewisville.

Former teammates tweeted their condolences following the news of Glenn’s death Monday morning.
