Sam Hurd Arrest: Former Chicago Bears WR Set For April 2 Trial

Sam Hurd, the ex-wide receiver for the Chicago Bears, is getting ready for the stand, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Arrested on drug charges after he was caught in a Homeland Security drug sting, Hurd was cut from the Bears' roster on December 16th and has been awaiting a trial since.

Hurd pleaded not guilty to charges of attempting to purchase drug-dealer-sized quantities of cocaine and marijuana. His trial is set for April 2.

Hurd played a total 12 games with the Bears after spending his first five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. He caught only 8 passes for 109 yards, spending most of the season on special teams, registering 1 tackle, 1 fumble forced and 1 fumble recovery.
