Very sad news Monday morning out of Irving, TX as a former New England Patriots wide receiver has passed away.

According to multiple reports, Terry Glenn, a former first-round draft pick of the Patriots back in 1996, has died due to injuries suffered in a car accident in the Dallas area. He was 43 years old. Mac Engel from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram was one of the first to report the horrible news on Twitter.

Glenn spent six years as a member of the Patriots, including a rookie season where the Ohio State standout caught 90 passes for 1,132 yards and six touchdowns to help the Pats earn their spot in the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history.

He also, famously, caught the first touchdown pass of Tom Brady's career back in 2001. After his stint with the Patriots, Glenn spent a season with the Green Bay Packers before heading to Dallas to join the Cowboys. His reunion with Bill Parcells lasted for five seasons starting in 2003, which included back-to-back seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving in 2005 and 2006. A knee injury limited him to only one game in 2007, which would be the last of his NFL career.
