Chicago Bears wide-receiver Sam Hurd was arrested Wednesday night in Rosemont, Illonois after he physically accepted a kilogram of cocaine from a informant and an undercover federal agent who posed as a drug dealer, per federal charges that were filed today in Dallas.  Hurd was charged with one count of conspiring to possess half a kilogram of cocaine with the intent to distribute it.  At the Wednesday night meeting with the informant and undercover federal agent, authorities stated that Hurd negotiated to buy 5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana a week for distribution in the Chicago area!!!  Who says professional athletes dont give back to their community???  Hurd agreed to pay $25,000 for each kilogram of cocaine and $450 a pound for the marijuana, according to the charges. Here is the offical complaint. Its a classic. 

Hurd signed a three-year deal on July 30th that included a signing bonus of $1.3 million and will pay him base salaries of $685,000 in 2011, $865,000 in 2012, and $1 million in 2013.  Obviously no man can live off of that type of money these days.  With the money it costs to support an entourage, the growing cost of high class hookers, and the need to throw some D's on that *****, its understandable that Sam would need to work a second job.  So much for having a good work ethic!
