Jeff Gladney, an Arizona Cardinals cornerback, and former first-round draft pick, died in a car wreck in Dallas early Monday morning. However, the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department recently provided additional information about the terrible tragedy.

According to TMZ, the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department stated that two people, a male, and a female, were discovered lifeless in a white overturned vehicle at 2:30 a.m. The deceased have not been identified by name, but the white vehicle, which is thought to be Gladney’s, was reportedly speeding when it collided with a second vehicle from behind.

Gladney’s vehicle’s speed at the time of the accident is currently unknown. On the road, the white vehicle collided with a pier beam and overturned into a grassy area. The occupants in the second vehicle were unharmed. On Tuesday, cops are expected to provide more information.

Gladney, who was born in Texas in 1996, was drafted 32nd overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2020 NFL Draft, after starring at TCU. In 2020, the cornerback appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings, recording 81 tackles, 63 of them being solo tackles.
