Former Bears and Cowboys wide receiver Sam Hurd’s case is apparently, finally near a resolution.

Hurd’s lawyer, Jay Ethington, told Jared Hopkins of the Chicago TribuneA plea of guilty is in the works.”

Hurd was scheduled to stand trial Monday in Dallas on drug conspiracy charges, after he was arrested in December 2011, after allegedly telling an undercover agent he wanted to buy large quantities of cocaine and marijuana to distribute.

There were reports a plea deal was close last fall, but that fell apart.

Hurd faces a maximum sentence of 10 years to life in prison and a $10 million fine. Hurd’s cousin and another man involved in the case have already pleaded guilty, and are expected to testify against him if it goes to trial.
