Dallas Police said the crash occurred at 2.30 a.m. and reported two fatalities, including Gladney. His young life has been cut short because of overspeeding.
The former Texas Christian University (TCU) draft prospect had just signed with the Cardinals in the 2022 off-season after being acquitted of felony assault. In 2021, a woman that Gladney had been in a relationship with, claimed that the NFL player domestically assaulted her after he demanded to see her text messages in his car.
Jeff Gladney started 15 games in his 2020 rookie year with the Vikings. He had not been around the NFL since his arrest in April 2021 in Dallas. After being found not guilty in a Dallas court on March 10, he signed a two-year deal with the Cardinals.
On Monday afternoon, the Cardinals released a statement after learning the news, describing the player’s death as a ‘tremendous loss.’
