Jones said his fiancĂ©e was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Her name and further details werenâ€™t released. Jones had no immediate information on whether the couple wore seatbelts.
Glenn won the Biletnikoff Award as the nationâ€™s top college receiver in 1995, piling up 1,411 yards and 17 touchdowns in his only year as a starter for Ohio State to set the stage for a pro career. Glenn played 12 seasons in the NFL Cheap Steve Grogan Jersey , from 1996 to 2007, including six with the Patriots, five with the Dallas Cowboys and another year in Green Bay. He finished his career with 8 Cheap Stephon Gilmore Jersey ,823 yards receiving and 44 touchdowns.
The Patriots drafted Glenn seventh overall in 1996 when Bill Parcells was coach, and Glenn set an NFL rookie record with 90 catches for a team that reached the Super Bowl, losing to the Packers.
Bradyâ€™s first touchdown pass was a 21-yarder to Glenn in a 29-26 overtime win over San Diego the year that Brady took over for an injured Drew Bledsoe and led the Patriots to their first Super Bowl title. The 40-year-old Brady is in his 18th season and has won five championships.
Glenn was suspended from the 2001 team for the playoffs for multiple unexcused absences from practices and meetings. The club also withheld a bonus payment because of off-field issues that included an arrest over an incident with the mother of his 5-year-old son. The woman recanted the charges.
â€śI was pretty close with Terry Cheap Stephen Gostkowski Jersey ,â€ť said Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who was in his first year as an assistant with the team when Glenn was a rookie. â€śI think he was, deep down inside a good person with good intentions and a good heart.â€ť
Glenn came to the Cowboys when Parcells was hired in 2003 and had a career-high seven touchdowns along with 1 Cheap Shea McClellin Jersey ,136 yards in 2005. In 2010, Glenn was arrested in Irving for auto theft in what his attorney said was a mix-up over a car rental. A year earlier, he was arrested at an Irving hotel on charges of public intoxication and marijuana possession.
â€śTerry was someone that we all enjoyed very much in his time with the Cowboys Cheap Shaq Mason Jersey ,â€ť owner Jerry Jones said. â€śHe was a gentle and kindhearted young man. Too young and too soon.â€ť
Glenn spent his one year in Green Bay after leaving the Patriots following the tumultuous 2001 season.
â€śTerry was one of the most gifted receivers we have ever had,â€ť New England owner Bob Kraft said. â€śFor so many Patriots fans, his rookie season will be remembered as one of the most impactful in franchise history.â€ť
Former Patriots QB Drew Bledsoe expressed his sorrow via social media .
â€śLoved this man. My son asked me a decade ago who my favorite receiver ever was because he wanted that jersey for Christmas. He got a Terry Glenn jersey from Santa Cheap Ryan Allen Jersey ,â€ť Bledsoe wrote. â€śTG overcame horrible adversity to become a really good man. May your soul rest in peace my friend.â€ť
