Report: Sam Hurd Has Been Released After Drug String
CBS reported previously that Hurd was a top drug dealer in the Chicago area. Prior to his arrest he had been trying to orchestrate a distribution deal with an undercover agent who had been posing as a North Texas area supplier.
Hurd told the agent he and a co-conspirator were distributing upwards of four kilograms of cocaine a week in Chicago but “it wasn’t enough.” Hurd then reportedly told the agent he was seeking five to ten kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week. The 26-year-old was in his first season with the Chicago Bears and had signed a three-year contract with the team worth $5.15 million.
