Bears cut Sam Hurd after allegations of drug dealing

Earlier today, the Bears placed Hurd on waivers, the first step toward cutting him from the team.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Young Kim told Hurd he must "maintain or seek employment" while on bond.

“Yes sir,” Hurd answered in a deep voice as the judge listed each condition of his release and asked if he understood.

Hurd kept his hands clasped behind his back throughout the hearing.

Hurd was arrested Wednesday night as he dined at a high-end suburban steakhouse with an undercover federal agent and a confidential government informant, Hurd spoke of his desire to become a drug kingpin, authorities said.

The Bears receiver and special teams leader, who is earning $2 million this year on the football field, allegedly told his companions that he needed 5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana every week. He was also allegedly looking for a cellphone from Mexico because he believed that it could help him evade federal wiretaps.

The dinner ended with one of the two supposed drug suppliers handing Hurd a bag allegedly containing 1 kilogram of cocaine.

As he allegedly placed the bag in his vehicle outside Morton's The Steakhouse in Rosemont, Hurd was quickly arrested. He now faces major federal drug conspiracy charges that have put his career in peril and also carry a hefty potential sentence of up to 40 years in prison. Unlike other athletes who have drawn headlines for relatively minor drug offenses, Hurd's case is striking in that the charges against him portray him as what cops would consider a major player in the drug world.

Although the article I posted says he was placed on waivers, CBS reports that he has been cut from the team.

Other articles have said that he told the undercover agents that he was currently selling 4 kilos of cocaine per week, but was looking for a new supplier because his old one could not keep up with his product demands...Sounds like this guy was a drug kingpin in the Chicago area...Instead of using his football money to get out of a life of crime, he used it to expand and become a legit drug dealer...Let's pretend he talked to a real supplier and not an undercover agent, if he sold that amount of drugs per week, he'd be making more in a month of dealing as he would the whole Bears season


Also heard rumors that he has a list of clients with a significant number of NFL players...This has not been confirmed, but it was mentioned on Jim Rome's show....If this is also true, wow just WOW!

Maybe that's why he couldn't keep up with his product demands. :unsure:

I think it just goes to show that money is not the cure for a criminal mind. In fact, money is more likely to take a bad person and make them worse (and turn a good person bad), than to help them see the light of day and turn them from their life of crime.
