Terry Glenn's trade to the Green Bay Packers is complete and now needs only to be approved by the league, which should happen Monday.
Green Bay General Manager/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced the deal late Friday, saying he was pleased to finally have the necessary paperwork completed to land Glenn. That paperwork has been forwarded to the league offices and is expected to be fully completed Monday.
"Terry brings another dimension to our receiving corps," Sherman said. "He has indicated to me in my conversations with him an intense desire to play at Lambeau Field in front of the Green Bay Packers' fans. I am enthused to get him here and have him become a part of this team."
In exchange for Glenn, who appeared in just four games in 2001 because of various suspensions and a hamstring problem, the Packers will send New England a fourth-round selection in the 2002 draft and a conditional, performance-based choice in the 2003 draft.
A first-round draft selection out of Ohio State in 1996, Glenn is the fourth-ranking receiver in New England's 42-year league history with 329 career catches. However, his time in New England was marred by injuries and controversy.
"I'm excited to join the Green Bay Packers," Glenn said. "I'm looking forward to being a part of the storied tradition that so many football fans follow with such incredible passion. To play for Coach Sherman and in the same offense with Brett Favre is a great opportunity. I want to contribute to the team in every way I can and help the Packers get to the championship level."
Glenn will be introduced to the Wisconsin sports media at a press conference on Saturday, March 9, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. in the media auditorium of the Packers' administration building.
