Jeff Gladney, the former 1st round draft pick and Arizona Cardinals cornerback, died early Monday morning after a car accident in Dallas. He was 25 years of age.

The details about this fatal Memorial Day crash aren't precise till now.

Gladney was born in 1996 in Texas. Minnesota Vikings drafted him in 2020 with the 32nd overall pick after starring at TCU.

The player played all the 16 games in the Vikes in 2020. Standing 81 tackles, where 16 were solo.

However, Minnesota cut Jeff in 2021 summer following accusations of assaulting his girlfriend. The case went to trial, and he wasn't found guilty. Gladney couldn't play during the whole 2021 season as the trial took time.

Once he was proved not guilty, he was free to start his promising football career. In fact, the Cardinals signed a new agreement with him.

The entire NFL world is mourning oh his death. After this tragic news, the Cardinals organization released a statement saying they were devastated to know about Gladney.

Their hearts go out to the player's family, friends, and everyone mourning this tremendous loss.

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor – Gladney's former TCU teammate, is in profound grief.

He said he lost his brother, best friend, and right hand. It is unbearable. R.I.P Jeff Gladney, please keep an eye on me!

New Cardinal team member J.J. Watt wrote horrifying news this morning. Just tragic. Rest In Peace, Jeff. Rest in peace.

Thank You!
