About 24 hours ago, the biggest worry in Sam Hurd's life was whether or not his Chicago Bears would make the NFL Playoffs this season. Today? Well, today is a much different story and dude definitely has much bigger things on his mind. That's because on Wednesday, the Bears wide receiver was arrested after he reportedly met up with an undercover federal agent at a restaurant in Chicago and told him that he was interested in buying—get this—five to ten kilos of cocaine and 1000 pounds of marijuana every week for distribution in the Chicago area. That's right. A current NFL player tried to score some serious weight from an undercover federal agent. At a restaurant in Chicago. Presumably before an NFL practice. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEASON!
Listen, we've heard about athletes—and NFL players, in particular—trying to get into the drug game in the past. But if this turns out to be true, this is one of the craziest drug-related sports stories we've ever heard. Guess that NFL money really isn't all it's cracked up to be, eh?
