The entire situation is absolutely horrific and tragic, and there’s no other way to describe it. Gladney was only 25 years old and had just made his return to the NFL when he signed with the Cardinals.
He should have had decades of success ahead of him. Instead, he’s dead in his mid-20s after the car he was in was allegedly speeding and clipped another vehicle.
