It could have been worse for Hurd, but it is still pretty bad.
Hurd says he wants to play in the NFL again, I doubt that is ever going to happen. He needs to concentrate on trying to lessen this jail sentence that is upcoming.
Former NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd was indicted Wednesday on federal drug conspiracy and possession charges after he and another man were accused of trying to establish a drug-dealing network. The indictment handed up by a federal grand jury in Dallas accuses Hurd, cut by the Chicago Bears after his arrest last month during an undercover drug sting, and codefendant Toby Lujan of single counts of cocaine possession and conspiracy to possess cocaine. It also seeks forfeiture of $88,000 in cash by Lujan and a 2010 Cadillac Escalade by Hurd. Hurd remained free on $100,000 bond. Both could be sentenced to 10 years to life in prison if convicted of conspiracy and up to 40 years in prison if convicted of the possession count.
I would love to hear Hurd’s explanation for this when it is all over.
I am sure it will be on Real Sports while he is behind bars in a couple of years.
