    There's a lot more pro athlete funded drug dealing than anyone is talking about.

    Report out now is he was attempting to make a $2 mil per month purchase to expand his existing about $1 mil per month existing distribution.

    As to why he would do it, he was making $685,000 in about to be over football career that was his second job anyway.

    This story is just mind boggling. The numbers they're throwing out there would make him one of the biggest if not the biggest drug dealer in Chicago. I remember hearing the story when Nate Newton was arrested after being stopped with 500 lbs of pot in his van. I thought it was HUGE. That was nothing compared to this story. I wouldn't be surprised if he not only has clients among NFL players, but also partners/investors. Coming up with $750K a week to get your drug dealing business going isn't that easy if that's what your annual NFL salary is. Unreal.

    No no no, I mean why would HE do it himself? Why isn't HE sending out a henchman to make the deals and basically be a fall guy if shit hits the fan?

    I understand that he does it to make money. Geez...

    This is the perfect example of stupid right here. Great athlete that makes hundreds of thousands of dollars and should have Millions put away in the bank after playing football for several years, and he's out there selling dope like a complete moron. This is the typical effect of guys thinking they have to act like thugs, and wanting to be hood superstars. Being an athlete obviously wasn't enough, because he wasn't doing this for the money. He had more than enough money to live a wealthy lifestyle and take care of his family. He obviously was caught up in the hood lifestyle and believed that it was glorified to be a big time drug dealer.

    I just hope that if there are indeed other NFL players involved in this, none of them are Texans players.

    Hurd, who sold himself as a church-going Christian, would have been making about $700,000 a week off drug sales based on the amount of drugs he is alleged to have negotiated for.

    His annual salary with the Bears was $685,000.

    Hurd is facing 40 years in prison.

    ^That kind of split is approaching sociopathy.

    There has to be more to the story, and I'm now very interested in Mr. Hurd.

    There are probably some real tight assholes in the Cowboys players' camp right now.:chef:

    Hurd?...........Never heard of the guy.

    And what are these drugs in your locker?..........Oh, these are just faux samples to show all the kids what they should SAY NO too.
