Hurd accused of arranging multimillion-dollar drug deals

Sam Hurd AP

Sam Hurd was not a big name in pro football, but he sure sounds like a big name in the Chicago drug world.

The details of his arrest Thursday reveal a man deep into drug trafficking. Playing in the NFL was Sam Hurd’s side job.

From a pop culture perspective, Hurd’s story plays out like a story arc on The Wire or a Ghostface Killah song.

Here are some details from the criminal complaint against Hurd, available publicly.

1. Hurd told an undercover agent Wednesday night that he was looking to buy “5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area.”

2. Hurd negotiated to pay $25,000 per kilogram for the cocaine and $450 per pound of the weed. So Hurd had the cash flow to pay for $575,000-$700,000 worth of drugs per week.  That’s well over $2 million per month.  (We’ll let you imagine how much he was bringing in or planning to bring in.)

3.  The money Hurd was willing to spend was on top of what he was already purchasing elsewhere. Hurd told the informant that he currently distributed “four kilograms of cocaine per week in the Chicago area, but that the supplier could not supply him with enough quantity.”

Hurd was trying to take his operation to another level.

4. Hurd first came on the police’s radar in July. After receiving a tip, police found a man with a bag filled with $88,000 in a canvas bag. The man said the money and car belonged to Hurd. It was Hurd’s car, and the receiver still attempted to get the money back.

This should have raised a red flag, but Hurd was too foolish or in too deep to realize he needed to slow down.

5.  Hurd was looking for Mexican cell phones, because he believed authorities didn’t have the ability to track them.

6. This wasn’t a small operation. Hurd only dealt with “high level” deals; a co-conspirator handled more day-to-day stuff. Hurd allegedly had business as far away as California and had a fleet of vehicles.

We suspect this story is only getting started, and it’s one that could get increasingly uncomfortable for the NFL. If Twitter is any indication, it’s already big news.

Sam Hurd is the fifth-highest trending topic in the country right now.

    Other players possibly implicated too?

  4. manhorse69 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:20 PM

    But will he play this weekend against Seattle or will he be suspended without due process? This is an outrage. I’m calling Jackie Chiles.

  5. manhorse69 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:21 PM

    What %of all that does his agent get?

  6. 4t9er says: Dec 15, 2011 3:21 PM

    In other countries he would be executed. The Bears need to release him and he needs to be banned from professional sports forever ( If the accusations are true).

  7. revolution22 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:21 PM

    Just putting a worse light on Chi-Town than was already there. Holy crap…a drug kingpin in the NFL. Wow.

    I hope HURD complied with the Rooney Rule before hiring someone to sell his drugs.

  11. oilers101 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:23 PM

    $450 a pound for weed? That must be some serious ditch weed he is selling.

  16. shotofginn says: Dec 15, 2011 3:25 PM

    Apparently there is a list of double digit NFL players that Hurd supplied too…

    I bet ‘how long does cocaine stay in your system’ is the #1 trending topic on NFL players iPhones

    He’s just trying to end all those complaints about the Soldier Field grass.

  21. quizguy66 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:29 PM

    Couple of questions

    1) Is this related in any way shape or form to the Jerome Simpson case? (a case that seems to have gone completely quiet – presumably b/c there were bigger fish to fry)

    2) Are there other players or NFL-related people involved directly or indirectly? There’s a huge pool of people with means and connections that he’d certainly have access to. How big is this thing given the volumes involved?

    3) If 2 is true, just how many players/teams does this reach into? What will the impact me? How in the world can the NFL combat it if it’s true?

    4) Why is cocaine measured using the metric system but marijuana is not? I mean you’d think they’d have to gone one standard by now. What’s up with that?

    The Bears should get rid of all of these ex-Dallas Cowboys ‘rejects’ – Hurd, Barber, and Williams.

  24. triggerfist says: Dec 15, 2011 3:30 PM

    … and i thought it was dumb when Dallas did not resign him.

    Sam “Scarface” Hurd! Insane level of bad judgment and stupidity.

    You would think anonymity would be something he would seek, not the exact opposite.

  27. tjacks7 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:31 PM

    How stupid do you have to be to not have someone else taking the fall for you if you’re putting up the money? These’s no reason for him to be seen at all. Oh well, he gets what he deserves here.

  28. kd75 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:31 PM

    Scratch that. At $450 a pound, his grass is probably worse than the Soldier Firld grass.

  29. twitter:Chapman_Jamie says: Dec 15, 2011 3:31 PM

    Jesus… when he played in Dallas he never struck me as someone smart enough to pull something like this off. I guess he wasn’t.

  37. newtons2ndlaw says: Dec 15, 2011 3:35 PM

    It’s one thing, to sell drugs as your making millions per year playing in the NFL. But to be the head of a large drug ring and to be doing such incriminating things first hand, is just idiotic. If anything, he should have been using his NFL career as a money laundering operation, at which case he would have to be squeaky clean on paper. He should have had at least 5 different guys directly below him, doing the dirty work.

    Just stupid, stupid stupid. Nothing worse than a stupid criminal. On a side note, he was bringing in, if he was selling wholesale, anywhere between 3-4 million a week. Making more of the marijuana of course. Moving 1000 lbs a week is insane.

  38. thisguy2169 says: Dec 15, 2011 3:35 PM

    Never thought being an NFL player would be a players lowest paying job.

  43. nineroutsider says: Dec 15, 2011 3:38 PM

    He’s just trying to make a dollar out of $0.15. Got that from some rap song.

    If only he would have taken that entrepreneurial spirit into a legal industry. Too bad, even a player like him should be able to store away enough for a nice investment in something he could legitimately grow like a retail franchise. Good money in that once you own a few.

  47. irishnativeson says: Dec 15, 2011 3:39 PM

    I’ll bet you he was stupid enough to ask the “undercover agent” if he was a cop and then believe him when he said no.

    Omar (Roger Goodell) coming

    You have showed your love in the past for The Wire, Mr. Rosenthal. The guy is a fool, and a fool and his money will soon part.

    Making at minimum $600K, more than that because he has been in the league 6 years, he has made well over $1 million over the course of his career. To throw that away for drugs is ridiculous. I don’t know whether to blame greed or a failure to get away from “friends in low places”, but either one is his fault and he will soon pay for it. Dearly.

    There’s a missing fact here – did Jerry Jones get Hurd and his associates to pay to be the “Official Cocaine of the Dallas Cowboys”??

    Sounds like business was good. That’s the entrepreneurial spirit.

    The only difference between him and Congress is: he’s going to jail.

    Sam Hurd aka Tony Montana

  78. totesfashotes says: Dec 15, 2011 3:51 PM

    Too bad he didn’t hustle this much on the football field.

  79. dfeltz says: Dec 15, 2011 3:52 PM

    He wasn’t exactly competing on the field so why not take on the world of a drug lord. Entrepreneur

  80. Iamthatguy says: Dec 15, 2011 3:53 PM

    Oh those NFL “partners” are such business savvy and respectable people. Shame on the owners for not considering these players worthy of being considered “partners”

  84. wegonnadoitbaby says: Dec 15, 2011 3:55 PM

    No one is going to want ANY part of this. His teammates are already qualifying their comments with the requisite ” Seemed nice…never hung out with him.”

    Here is Roy Williams quote,”It’s a situation that I don’t want anyone to be in, especially a close friend or a teammate I’ve been playing with now four or five years now. Especially a guy from Texas, with a wife and daughter. It’s tough for me, just cause I’m not into drugs or anything like that.”

    This story has the potential to get really big really fast.

    I don’t know will this be a fine in the making? Probably not does not compare to lets say, wrong color shoes, not talking to the press, personal fouls or letting a QB go back in after a hit to the head. God-del and his cronies will have to think long and hard on this one, after all due process comes into play. I

  88. KIR says: Dec 15, 2011 3:58 PM

    Bears get three players from the Cowboys this summer. Williams drops a ball for a touchdown against the Chiefs, most likely losing the game. We all know what Barber did on Sunday, and the third guy is selling dope on the streets of Chicago, big time!

    None of those players were traded either. Just cut and signed.

  108. doe22us says: Dec 15, 2011 4:31 PM

    The scope in terms of what he wanted to buy is unbelievable. However, this shouldn’t come as a surprise, a lot of NFL players without sports as an avenue for them to make a living or turn to will be criminals, so once their career is done they fall back to what they would have otherwise done. Sad and pathetic if you ask me.

    How many players, Julian Edelman(Pats), Jerome Simpson (Bengels) , Erik Walden(Packers) Larry Wilson (Panthers) Chris Cook (Vikings) to name a few have been arrested during the season and continued to play games?? James Harrison get suspended for hitting a running QB during a game. The Roger Goodell is a joke!!!!!!!!

    I am in no way surprised that so many PFT posters are so informed about the topic as to educate the rest of us that $450/pound for weed is a good deal or he bought cheap stuff. You guys realize that he was trying to buy from source and not from other distributors, right?

    I dont know why some of the MORONS in here associate one persons stupid and greedy actions with that of an entire team….does it really matter where the scum bag came from or who he plays for now???….Jeeesh!!

    Jerry Jones, on his golden toilet, laughing his butt off at Jerry Angelo. Three birds with one stone.

    That’s a lot of cash, he must be playing for the Bears just to get health insurance.

    Godell: Sam were you doing this?

    Hurd: Yeah!

    Godell: You know this is not allowed.

    Hurd: Yeah!

    Godell: You play for the Bears right?

    Hurd: Yeah!

    Goodell: OK Nothing will happen since you do not play for the Steelers! Have a nice day!

    Hurd: Yeah!

    Gentlemen, if Hurd was planning to buy that much weed — two tons a month — it would be my guess that he’s pretty much at the top of the weed chain, i.e. his cost is going to be about as low as it gets per pound. By the time the devil’s lettuce gets to you and your RUSH2112 bong in suburbia, the mark-up is considerable.

    Dirt weed? He may be a drug dealer, but you don’t have to insult the man.

    Turd.. See what I just did there??

    I bet he appeals the suspension.

    This is the Chicago organizations fault. They need to pay their players more so that they don’t have to take a second job.

    $450 a pound he would have made a killing

    Why make multi-millions in the NFL, when you can make it as a drug dealer!

  133. dirtdawg55 says: Dec 15, 2011 6:39 PM

    According to the World Drug Report, 2011 – yes, there is such a thing – a gram of coke goes for a little more than $200 a gram in the US. If true, the gross on a kilo is $200,000 that he paid $25,000 grand for. And if he was looking for 5 to 10 kilos a week that would add up to $50 to $100 million a year in gross for something that costs around $10 million to acquire.

    Yeah, I get there are multiple layers to pay but that’s a big stack of bills!

    “was looking to buy 5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week”
    —————————–

    Why is marijuana measured in pounds (English measurements) but cocaine measured in kilograms (metric measurements)?

    Also – what do you bet his #1 NFL player client is Tim Tebow? We all know Tebow will be on his list, it’s just a question of ranking how much he buys.

    A Philly Eagle used to get pot off my buddy a few yes ago. not in these amounts but much better stuff….

    Obviously he’s not one of the many NFL players who fail to plan for a career after football.

  137. mikehockhurtz says: Dec 15, 2011 11:35 PM

    $450/pound of weed? That’s either a wal-mart blowout level deal or Hurd isn’t exactly keen on quality..

    I would give that a thumbs up but the would blow my cover

    Industrious businessman sells to willing and eager customers. If the government could regulate and tax it, they’d call it capitalism.

    Did he sell purple drank to Jamarcus, too?
