Former NFL wide receiver pick Terry Glenn was killed in a car accident in Irving, Texas, early Monday, according to multiple reports. 

Glenn, who starred at Ohio State and was selected seventh overall in the 1996 NFL Draft by the Patriots, spent the final five seasons of his career with the Cowboys. He played 12 seasons, started 127 games and caught 593 passes for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Glenn eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards on four occasions -- including 1,132 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie and 1,047 yards and six touchdowns in 2006, his last full season. A knee injury limited Glenn to just one game in 2007 and he was released by the Cowboys the following offseason.

Glenn was 43.
