During his conference call on Monday, Bill Belichick reacted to the death of former Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn.

“I was pretty close with Terry,” Belichick said. “His rookie season was my first year here in ’96, so I had a lot of interaction with him and other people that were involved in his life and his upbringing separate from the Patriots. Terry’s a very smart individual. Had, obviously, a lot of physical skill and talent. Could do a lot of things on the football field very naturally.

"And I think [he] was, deep down inside, a good person with good intentions and a good heart. Obviously, it’s a very unfortunate passing and a sad day. It’s sad news.” 

Glenn was drafted by the Patriots in 1996 and stayed with the team through 2001. He even caught Tom Brady's first career touchdown pass.

The receiver finished his NFL career with 593 receptions for 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns. In New England, Glenn caught 329 passes for 4,669 yards and 22 touchdowns.
