A couple of years ago, wide receiver Sam Hurd was on the verge of cracking into the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys.
He played for the Cowboys from 2006 to 2010 and holds the distinction of being on the receiving end of quarterback Tony Romo’s first NFL pass completion. Hurd was talented and I hated to see him bolt for Chicago in 2011.
Now he’s on the verge of ruining his life.
Last December, he was busted for dealing weed and cocaine, and kicked off the Chicago Bears team. He was out on bond, but was re-arrested this month after testing positive for drugs, according to the Associated Press.
Hurd is currently incarcerated at a federal pen near Dallas.
Hurd’s cousin reportedly told prosecutors that the former NFL player bought 30 pounds of pot for $10,500. In May. While out on bond. For dealing drugs.
