Glenn was the No. 7 overall pick by the Patriots at the 1996 NFL Draft after playing collegiate football at Ohio State. He made an immediate impact in New England, catching 90 passes for 1,132 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie season.
He went on to play six seasons with the Patriots, making his first and only Pro Bowl in 1999. After spending a single season with the Packers, he finished his career by spending five seasons with the Cowboys.
Glenn had two more 1,000-yard seasons with the Cowboys, bringing his career total to four. A knee injury ended his career, and he was officially released in the summer of 2008.
He was a member of two AFC Championship squads with the Patriots and also caught Tom Brady’s first touchdown pass. However, he only played in four games during that 2001 season and never got a ring.
Glenn is survived by his fiancee and three children.
