Terry Glenn is the subject of more articles today. First, his pal Nick Cafardo gives him as amiable and glowing an article as you’ll read about any athlete. Jim Donaldson is stuck on the phrase “It’s so much better”, but does go into Glenn’s troubled history here a bit more Cafardo did. Michael Felger gets former teammates’ thoughts on Glenn. Tom Curran talks about Glenn in his notebook. Mike Reiss sends Terry a note.

Similar notebooks from the Globe and Herald, as both look at Lawyer Milloy attempting to fire up the troops, and Favre discussing retirement someday.
