Former NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Terry Glenn passed away on Monday morning after being involved in a car accident in Irving, Texas, according to former NFL defensive lineman Tony Casillas.

The Star-Telegram’s Clarence Hill Jr., who covered Glenn during his stint with the Dallas Cowboys, got some more information on how Glenn passed away.

Glenn, 43, recorded 593 receptions for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns as a member of the New England Patriots (1996-2001), Green Bay Packers (2002) and Dallas Cowboys (2003-07) during his 11-year NFL career with a Pro Bowl appearance in 1999.

The Columbus native was also a one-year starter at Ohio State, recording 64 receptions for 1,411 yards and 17 touchdowns in 1995, before being selected No. 7 overall by the Patriots in the 1996 NFL Draft.

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit, who played with Glenn at Ohio State, responded to the news of his former teammate’s passing via Twitter.

Clarence Hill Jr. noted that the former wide receiver had gotten engaged and had a child recently.

Glenn won the AFC twice with the New England Patriots and became a consensus All-American in 1995 before heading to the NFL Draft the next year.
