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.
