Former NFL star Terry Glenn has passed away. Officials say he was involved in a single-car crash involving a concrete barrier Monday morning. He was only 43.
We’re told Glenn was in a single-car accident early Monday morning and was ejected from his vehicle. By the time officials responded to the crash site, it was clear Glenn had passed. He was pronounced dead on arrival.
Glenn had a passenger in his vehicle — we’re told it was his fiancee — but she survived the crash. She’s currently being treated at the ICU of a local hospital.
We’re told officials plan on doing a full autopsy, including toxicology, to see if they can get more information on what led to the crash.
The wide receiver played 12 seasons for three different teams- the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys. He actually caught Tom Brady’s first career TD pass.

I’m speechless. My @Patriots Class Of ‘96 teammate and hands down most talented natural athlete I’ve seen in person. Terry kept to himself but was a good Dude with a big smile that lit up the room when it came out. #RIP #Patriots https://t.co/xk5HCng1gj
