News from Sports Illustrated and WFAA Dallas:
Sam Hurd was sentenced to 15 years in a federal prison today as a result of a sting operation that landed the former Cowboys player behind bars and in media headlines. Police say that Sam Hurd, 28 and a father of two, led a double life as an aspiring drug kingpin with the aid of his cousin. Feeling now like he has little to lose, Sam Hurd bares all of his thoughts to Sports Illustrated.
Hurds main motive for dealing cocaine and marijuana, he says, was simply to have a good time.
"I’m in the NFL and I’m gonna ask people for a few hundred dollars on top of what I paid for it? Nah, slide me what I got for it and take it. Enjoy it," he was quoted in the Sports Illustrated article.
The former Cowboy was much more open to speaking freely about his pot use than cocaine. Hurd flat out told SI in his interview that he used to smoke cannabis all day every day. Hurd told the magazine that on many occasions, he would smoke with other players in the NFL, many of whom were Dallas Cowboys. Although Hurd refused to name names, Hurd argued that half of NFL players smoke pot.
The statements from Hurd come as a surprise to his former teammate Jason Hatcher.
“It’s very shocking to hear," Hatcher said. "As far as everyone smoking in NFL, I don’t know about that. As long as you keep it your business, I don’t know really what to say about the situation."
What do you make of Hurd’s statements? Do you think Hurd’s comments hurt the Cowboys?
