Sam Hurd indicted on federal drug charges

Sam Hurd AP

Former Cowboys and Bears receiver Sam Hurd was indicted Wednesday in Dallas on federal drug conspiracy and possession charges.

Hurd and a codefendant Toby Lujuan are accused of trying to set up a drug-dealing network. The indictment accuses Hurd of cocaine possession and conspiracy to possess cocaine. It also is looking for $88,000 from Lujan and a 2010 Cadillac Escalade by Hurd.

Hurd is free on $100,000 bond. He could face up to ten years in prison. ┬áIt’s probably safe to drop him from your keeper fantasy league team at this point.

    I understand wanting to set up your own business for when the football days are over but, geeze, couldn’t you just have bought an apartment building or a couple of fast food franchises or something?

    “It also is looking for $88,000″

    “Hurd is free on $100,000 bond.”

    Do you think these two things are related?

    Yeah, for all one of you that has this piece on their team, its safe now to dump him and not back when he wasn’t catching any passes or scoring any touchdowns

    That’s bad news for Mike Martz… the only person interested in hiring him as a coordinator was Sam Hurd for Sam’s distribution network…

    Sam Hurd and Miles Austin battled for the #2 WR spot along side Roy Williams for much of his time in Dallas. He had a ton of talent and potential. He was just as good as Miles, and it was really a coin flip of who ended up getting the spot. Miles made the most of it with that game in Kansas City a few years back. I guess Sam was just more concerned with other things at the time, and not focusing on football like Miles. So yes, he was a huge waste of talent… moron, etc…

    With the indictment coming through, Sam can finally become a Bengal.

    10 years for multi-million dollars? for him it’s stupid, but for kids on welfare?

    The article says that he “could face up to 10 years in prison…”

    Actually that charge carries a minimum mandatory of 10 years up to life in prison. The only way to receive less than 10 is a motion filed from the government called a 5k1, which is “substantial assistance” to the authorities, such as agreeing to testify against others.
    It will be interesting to see if there is anything he can even give them that will save him from the 10 years.

    Tebow will not be on the “list”..

  25. ugk612 says: Jan 5, 2012 9:50 AM

    @1bucplace: and in the federal prison system, you serve 85% of your time!

  26. melikefootball says: Jan 5, 2012 12:48 PM

    Hard to sit at home and not wonder what gets in these guys heads. Hope he gets all ten years but I’m sure he will run for cover and get that pointing finger out of his pants. Look out for whom ever has done business with this idiot.

  27. professorcolumbus says: Jan 5, 2012 1:32 PM

    @ugk612

    That isn’t the point (what he serves,) it is what he faces. It is not “up to” 10 years, it is a min-man of 10 years. Yes, he could get the minimum and only serve 85%, but unless he can give up someone higher on the food chain, or some others on his level, he is facing at least a 10 year sentence. The judge isn’t allowed, by law, to go any lower without a substantial assistance agreement from the DA. The article is incorrect.
