Terry Tyree Glenn (July 23, 1974 – November 20, 2017) was an American football wide receiver, who played in the National Football League (NFL) for 12 seasons. He played college football for Ohio State University, and was recognized as an All-American. He was drafted by the New England Patriots seventh overall in the 1996 NFL Draft, and also played for the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys.

Early years[edit]

Glenn was born in Columbus, Ohio. When he was 13 years old, his mother was beaten to death by a man she had recently met.[1]

Glenn attended Brookhaven High School in Columbus, graduating in 1992.[2]

College career[edit]

Glenn attended Ohio State University, and was a walk-on player for Ohio State Buckeyes football team.[3] In 1995, he was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American[4] and won the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top wide receiver.[5]

  • 1993: 8 catches for 156 yards
  • 1994: 7 catches for 110 yards
  • 1995: 64 catches for 1,411 yards with 17 TD

Professional career[edit]

New England Patriots[edit]

Glenn was drafted in the first round (seventh overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. He signed a six-year, $12 million contract. Glenn recorded 90 receptions for 1,132 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie season. At the time, his 90 receptions were the most ever in a single season by a rookie in NFL history.[6] Wide receiver Anquan Boldin went on to catch 101 passes his rookie year during the 2003 NFL season for the Arizona Cardinals. Patriots head coach, Bill Parcells, once referred to Glenn as "she", but after the 1996 season said he was wrong and Glenn was a winner. However, Parcells left New England after Glenn's rookie season and Glenn went into a four-year stretch of personal difficulties and inconsistent play. In 1999 and 2000, he was the Patriots leading receiver. He signed a six-year, $50 million contract extension during the 2000 season.[6]

In the lead-up to the 2001 season, Glenn ran into a host of off-field issues. First he was arrested for domestic assault, and later he was suspended for the first four games of the season due to failing a drug test.[7] Shortly before the season, he left training camp early due to a pay dispute. Glenn did end up playing for the team after serving his suspension, but following injuries and more disputes with the coaching staff, head coach Bill Belichick deactivated him for the rest of the season.[8] Glenn only wound up playing in four games in 2001, most notably catching the first career touchdown pass thrown by Tom Brady in a game against the San Diego Chargers on October 14th.[9] The Patriots went on to win Super Bowl XXXVI without Glenn, and he did not receive a Super Bowl ring.

Green Bay Packers[edit]

Before the 2002 season, the Patriots traded Glenn to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for two fourth-round draft picks.[10]

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

Before the 2003 season the Packers traded him to the Dallas Cowboys.[11] Against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2005, he caught a touchdown pass on a flea-flicker and rushed for a touchdown on an end-around, both trick plays. Glenn finished the 2005 season with 63 receptions for 1,136 yards and 7 touchdowns, the most receiving yards he had amassed in a single season since 1999.[12] Before the 2006 season, he signed a five-year, $20 million contract extension with Dallas.[13] In 2006, he recorded another 1,000 yard season and six touchdowns.[12]

Glenn missed the first fifteen games of the 2007 season and had been unable to even practice due to pre-season arthroscopic knee surgery. He returned to practice on December 12, 2007 but did not play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles and did not fly to Carolina for the Week 16 game. He made his season debut in Week 17 against the Washington Redskins.[14]

Glenn was released by the Cowboys on July 25, 2008, due to health concerns over his right knee, and not signing an injury clause.[15]
