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.

    If he only had a job and an opportunity to make a lot of money, he wouldn’t have to try and sell drugs…

    So Sam Hurd is going to prison for several years. He will be costing taxpayers approx $40K/yr while someone else slides into Sam’s spot in the coke game. That guy will eventually land himself next to Sam (if he’s lucky). Or he’ll wind up dead. And the saga continues… The war on drugs is a colossal failure with no end in sight. The only winners are the private prison industry and the politicians who support them. The prison lobbyists legally bribe our lawmakers to write more laws and pass harsher sentencing guidelines which guarantee their prisons stay packed full. Our jails are way overcrowded with nonviolent drug offenders and they like it that way. The US has the highest rate of incarceration in the civilized world and it’s not slowing down. Follow the money. And the saga continues…

    With all the riches laid at the feet of these athletes I’ll never understand why they need to do these kind of things. “Choices”
