Former Chicago Bear Sam Hurd allegedly may have sold drugs to other NFL players.
What if Sam Hurd had been supplying his Bears teammates with cocaine and marijuana? What if the five to 10 kilograms of coke and the 1,000 pounds of weed he allegedly wanted to purchase per week were also for his former Cowboys teammates and for pro players who make Dallas and Chicago their offseason homes?
What if Hurd was the Unofficial Drug Dealer of the NFL?
Then, friends, the Bears have a problem that will make Tank Johnson’s past criminal troubles look like a 911 call for a cat stuck in a tree.
It doesn’t take much of an imagination to get to a very uncomfortable place with Hurd and the Bears. They waived the receiver Friday, two days after his arrest on federal drug conspiracy charges. According to the criminal complaint against him, Hurd told an undercover agent that he and a partner already were selling about four kilograms of cocaine a week but needed more. The amount of cocaine and pot he wanted to buy weekly was worth about $700,000.
