Terry Glenn, former NFL wide receiver, dies in car crash

Former NFL wide receiver Terry Glenn died in a car accident Monday morning in Irving, Texas, according to multiple reports. He was 43.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that a member of Irving's fire department confirmed the crash.

Glenn, who played for the Patriots, Packers and Cowboys over a 12-year career, leaves behind a fiancee and five children.

Glenn, who played under Bill Parcells in both New England and Dallas, was the subject of one of the famed coach's blunders in 1996, when Parcells responded to a question about the then-Patriots rookie by saying, "She'll be alright."

After playing at Ohio State for three college seasons near his native Columbus, Glenn went on to make 593 catches for 8,823 yards over his NFL career.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
