    What a bag of tools....

    Get your NFL money, and get out of that life. 600k-2 mil a year that you make in the nfl, should have been enough

    Enough to start a drug empire and lose it all.

    Yeah, little sympathy from me.

    He had a chance that very few actually get and he blew it.

    I'm not so much sympathetic. I just always thought he was a guy with his head on straight. Very polite. God fearing. Then he gets caught peddling drugs and is going to do a decade or two in jail. He's responsible for his decisions, but it's just such a waste.

    He did a great job of fooling everyone. Which could not have been accidental; and just shows how stupid he really is. Someone smart enough to pull that off for years is dumb enough to deal drugs.

    I don't think it was dumb, just a terrible thing to do. Trying to sell cocaine (and he was probably looking to sell heroin) is stuff that can destroy people's lives, ruin families and cause an insurmountable heartbreak and devestation.

    He is a jerk and I hope he gets what he deserves.

    The name of this thread shoud be titled

    Sam Hurd is and IDIOT!!!

    That would tell us everything we need to know. If you would have worked hard you could have gotten a 1 decent contract and had all the money you needed.

    Stupid on all kinds of levels.

    From all accounts, Sam Hurd did work very hard. He learned the responsibilities of every WR position and played special teams. He just didn't have a lot of natural talent. He also got a decent contract($4.15 million, $1.35 million signing bonus) when he joined the Chicago Bears. That is more than just decent. I think he got the most out of his abilities right up until he got busted for his drug activities. I agree that was very stupid.

    That is as big a reach as ESPN on DEZ quotes.

    I stand corrected. I guess I just remember him living off of a talented QB and a HOF WR and TE. He was a good special teams guy as well. All that aside, you threw away money and an opportunity that millions dream of but do not achieve because you watched to many Scarface movies. Stupid.
