A federal grand jury in Dallas has re-indicted former NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd, who already is accused of trying to establish a drug-distribution network.
The new indictment charges Hurd with conspiracy to possess 5 kilograms or more of cocaine with intent to distribute.
Hurd was first arrested in December 2011 outside a Chicago-area steakhouse after agents alleged that he accepted cocaine. He was re-arrested last year after authorities said he tried to buy more drugs and failed two drug tests.
If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to life in prison.
The 27-year-old Hurd remains at a Dallas-area prison without bond. His attorney, Jay Ethington, says prosecutors are ''trying to move the goalposts'' against him.
Hurd played for the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys.

Emmitt Smith ran behind some of the best offensive lines in league history during his time with the Dallas Cowboys. It's obvious that the Cowboys' current front five doesn't compare to those groups.
Actually, the Cowboys are coming off a season when it appeared as if they had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL.
According to Smith, the unit protecting Tony Romo...
Give it to Jason Garrett, he has held off owner Jerry Jones on calling plays for three months. Garrett at the NFL meetings seems more dug in than ever. They’ll only throw dirt on Garrett’s grave, so if he’s going down it’s going to be him calling the shots. He’s been graceful in avoiding the issue as much as he can, but anyone can see he’s clearly not okay with giving...

Yes, the "butt dumpling" or interception in the closing seconds of the game vs. Washington Redskins was a terrible throw. But, not all of the blame for the terrible finish to an up and down season belongs to Tony Romo. The majority of the blame goes to the Cowboys' weak offensive line.Let me break this down in easier terms -- When a QB spends majority of any game...
2013 marks the final season of a six-year contract extension that Tony Romo signed with the Cowboys during the 2007 season. While investing significantly in Romo may sound suspect given that the Romo era in Dallas has been marked with seasons like the one that just ended: a brief glimmer of hope eventually snuffed out by monumental failure once Week 17 or the playoffs roll around...
It seems a lot of defensive players are visiting New Orleans, although Mardi Gras finished over a month ago.
Another one to visit is Victor Butler, the free agent linebacker according to the Times-Picayune:

Butler is an outside linebacker and if signed would be the third linebacker the Browns have signed this off-season as they move toward the 3-4 from the 4-3.
