Professional career

New England Patriots

Glenn was drafted in the first round (seventh overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. Glenn Immediately made a big impact for New England, recording 90 receptions for 1,132 yards and 6 touchdowns in his rookie season, and helping his team reach Super Bowl XXXI. At the time, his 90 receptions were the most ever in a single season by a rookie in NFL history. 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 the talented wide receiver went into a four-year stretch of personal difficulties and inconsistent play. During the 2001 season, coach Bill Belichick deactivated him for the rest of the season because of serial off-the-field problems (an interview on WBZ-TV in which Glenn hinted he was faking injuries because of Patriots discipline was a particular issue) and when the Patriots won Super Bowl XXXVI, Glenn did not receive a championship ring. Glenn played in two games in 2001, against the San Diego Chargers and Cleveland Browns; he caught the first touchdown thrown by Tom Brady (against the Chargers).

Green Bay Packers

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

Dallas Cowboys

Before the 2003 season the Packers traded him to the Dallas Cowboys. 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. In 2006 he recorded another 1000 yard season and 6 touchdowns.

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.

Glenn was released by the Cowboys on July 25, 2008 due to health concerns on his right knee, and not signing an injury clause. Dallas residents were also beginning to report serious cases of Glenn-fever.[1]

Miami Dolphins

At the beginning of August 2009, Terry accepted a position with the Miami Dolphins as an intern coach. During training camp, he assisted wide receiver coach Karl Dorrell.

Personal life

Glenn was arrested in a Dallas hotel in January 2009 and charged with marijuana possession and public intoxication.[2]

Terry Glenn was arrested again on January 5, 2010 for Grand Theft Auto in Irving, Texas for not returning a rented automobile
