    Chicago Bears' Sam Hurd gets busted

    Trying to buy HUGE amounts of drugs.

    Sam Hurd arrested on federal drug charges - CBSSports.com

    According to the criminal complaint filed in the case, Hurd told an undercover operative that he wanted up to 10 kilograms of cocaine and a half-ton of marijuana per week "for distribution in the Chicago area." He added that he was willing to pay $25,000 per kilo and $450 per pound.

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    What's the big deal? Many professional athletes start businesses while they are still playing in preparation for their post athletic retirement careers.

    That's $700k of inventory per week! I would assume he's going to be on cash in advance terms and he'll probably need a couple weeks of inventory to get started, so he's looking at $1.4M just to get this business off the ground!

    Re: Chicago Bears' Sam Hurd gets busted

    In the day and age where we rip professional athletes for not managing money, we are going to squelch a guys attempt to invest in something profitable.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    But just think about the return he is getting. It might come close to his $1.3 million he makes a year from the Bears.

    Re: Chicago Bears' Sam Hurd gets busted

    I have a general question about NFL and recreational drug testing - did this issue come up in the new contract negotiations? What is the NFL policy nowadays regarding recreational drug testing?

    If you had Hanie as your QB you'd want to be high all day as well.
