Terry Glenn no longer wants to remain a Patriot, and would like to be elsewhere for the 2002 season.

In a riveting interview on WBZ Sunday night, Glenn lashed out at the team for mistreatment, and called upon them to trade him or release him so that he can play somewhere else next year. When asked by Steve Burton if he wanted to remain a Patriot, Glenn bluntly replied “I did”, emphasizing the word “did”.

Glenn at times sounded angry over questions about his personal life, and why he hasn’t yet returned to the football field. He impressed on Burton and Bob Lobel that people love him on the football field, but when he goes home at night he has to live out his personal battles, and no one else. He emphasized that his hamstring is still bothering him, and that is the only reason why he isn’t out there playing at the moment.

Glenn was also pressed on his signing bonus, and it was the only issue in which he seemed vague and evasive. Glenn, sounding like former Red Sox slugger Mo Vaughn, said that the haggling over the signing bonus “isn’t about the money”, and that he would play elsewhere for less money.

Despite his angry denouncement of the organization and his insistence on wanting to leave, he did leave the door slightly open to his return to the team. He said that if the team really wants him, they should get this situation resolved quickly. When asked who needs to give first, Glenn insisted that he has given all he has, but that the Patriots haven’t given him a thing.
