“We are devastated to learn of Jeff Gladney’s passing,” the team said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to his family, friends and all who are mourning this tremendous loss.”

Gladney was 25. Gladney’s agent, Brian Overstreet, confirmed to multiple outlets that Gladney was killed in a car accident.

 “We are asking prayers for the family and privacy at this most difficult time,” Overstreet said in a statement to the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram.

The Minnesota Vikings selected Gladney 31st overall in the 2020 NFL draft out of TCU. They released him on Aug. 3, 2021 after a Texas grand jury indicted him on felony domestic violence charges stemming from an April 2021 incident involving his then-girlfriend. Gladney did not play during the 2021 season but signed with the Arizona Cardinals less than one week after a jury found him not guilty.
