• Breaking Real Bad: Inside the Sam Hurd Drug Case

    The MMQB.com: Inside the drug trafficking case against Sam Hurd Hurd was arrested on Dec. 14, 2011 and indicted on Jan. On Tuesday, the MMQB published an investigation into Hurd’s case that raised questions about the prosecution’s portrayal of Hurd as a drug kingpin. Hurd claimed that his marijuana addiction led him to make bad decisions. Hurd’s six-year NFL career came to an abrupt end one day in 2011 when he went from Bears practice to a Chicago restaurant to meet with two people he thought were Mexican drug dealers but were actually undercover FBI agents. Several times Hurd was given tissues and gently urged to calm himself and take deep breaths by both McCrum and Solis. He allegedly tried to buy more cocaine and marijuana through a cousin, Jesse Tyrone Chavful, and failed two drug tests. Since the life sentence recommendation was made in late July, one comment repeated by sources across the spectrum of partiality has been some version of this reminder: You realize life in prison in the federal system means the next time he comes out of prison it'll be in a coffin.
