Former NFL receiver Sam Hurd, who currently is in custody while awaiting federal drug charges, may want to get comfortable.

According to the Associated Press, a man accused of working with Hurd to arrange purchases of cocaine has pleaded guilty.  And the plea requires him to testify upon request of the prosecution.

Specifically, Toby Lujan pleaded guilty Friday to possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine.  He will spend five to 40 years in prison.

Hurd is scheduled to stand trial on October 9.  He played for the Cowboys and the Bears.
