Wide receiver Terry Glenn had a tough time with the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers. Considered a malcontent, Glenn seemed to get his act together and found a home with the Dallas Cowboys.

Since last season, Glenn, who has played a dozen years in the NFL, has been nursing an ailing knee. He did not pass a physical at the end of the 2007 season and has since undergone two knee operations. If Glenn cannot play, Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones wants the receiver to accept a $500,000 injury settlement and leave the club. He has a contract for $1.74 million.

Last season, Glenn played in just one game. It was the final regular season contest. He got paid $5 million to be in four plays.

The New England Patriots first signed Glenn, who came out of Ohio State in 1996. In 2001, he became disillusioned with New England and eventually signed with the Green Bay Packers. He played for six years with the Patriots, one year with the Packers and five with Dallas.

Over that time, Glenn has played in 137 games, making 593 catches for 8,823 yards. He gained an average of 14.9 yards per carry, making 44 touchdowns and committing just seven fumbles.

But injuries have plagued Glenn. In 12 seasons, Glenn has played in 15 or 16 regular season games a total of six times. In five years with the Cowboys, Glenn played in 15 or 16 contests three times. In his last season, he appeared in just one game.

For the very talented but aging Cowboy, this may be his last roundup.
