Sam Hurd allegedly tried buying 200 pounds of marijuana, 5 kilos of cocaine while on bail

It’s confirmed: Sam Hurd may be the dumbest athlete in the country. The former Cowboys and Bears wide receiver was busted last year by undercover federal agents for trying to buy absurd amounts of drugs. Now here’s the kicker: while out of jail on bail, Hurd not only tested positive for marijuana twice, but he also tried buying truckloads of drugs. Again. No joke.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Hurd successfully purchased 30 pounds of marijuana while out on bail. He also allegedly tried buying 200 more pounds of marijuana and 5 kilograms of cocaine.

Hurd was arrested for violating his bond and remains in federal custody while awaiting trial on October 9 for drug trafficking charges.

If Hurd’s not the dumbest athlete in the country, he’s up there. I mean that is just asking to be locked up for good. Are you really that addicted to the life that you can’t give it up for a few months while you’re awaiting federal drug trafficking charges? Or do you think that Hurd knew he was going to spend the rest of his life in jail, so he figured why not stick his nose out there for his buddies so they wouldn’t risk getting into trouble?

I really wonder what was going through Hurd’s head when he tried to set up that purchase. Even D.J. Williams thinks he’s an idiot.

Sam Hurd Was the Tony Montana of Chicago (Allegedly)

We’ve reported about several athletes who have been busted with drugs here at LBS. Just two weeks ago we shared the story of two Redskins players who were busted for failing multiple marijuana tests. In April, there was a Duke football player kicked off the team after being caught trafficking cocaine. And way back in the day, there was Nate Newton who was arrested in 2002 with 175 pounds of weed in his truck. But nothing — and I mean nothing — can possibly compare to what Sam Hurd was doing (allegedly).

Hurd was busted by an undercover federal agent for setting up a deal to purchase absurd quantities of weed and coke.
