NFL players – and especially NFL players of color – took a knockout blow yesterday…
On Wednesday, Chicago Bears wide out Sam Hurd was busted by the DEA for buying one kilogram (2.2 pounds) of cocaine. On top of that, Hurd had ordered 1,000 pounds of weed and up to 10 KIlograms of coke per week. That’s a wholesale value of just under a million bucks a week. Meaning this guy is a major supplier to dealers. Many of the dealers we are told being current and past NFL players.
In the double digits according to the Feds.
I heard about it first on 610 Sports with Nick Wright (and by the way, Nick and I made up).
Nick made two important comments. ONE: a guy buying this much ain’t selling a bag of weed to his pals. This is serious weight – Scar Face weight. SECOND: many other players will be named, this could be the worst criminal event ever for the NFL – way worse than the Michael Vick scandal.
This is a HUGE DRUG RING.
Heres a player, Sam Hurd, making $5 million for three years, nearly $2 million a year. And that’s not good enough? Most television stars don’t make that much money a year. And Sam’s a third string receiver – he’s only caught nine balls so far this season. Two million bucks? Scar Face Time…
You remember the Chiefs go-to-prison group; Tamarick Vanover and Bam Morris. Dealing, stealing cars etc. This is much worse.
The majority of NFL players today are black. And as Sports Illustrated wrote: "Almost all of the these players are broke or declare bankruptcy within five years of leaving the NFL."
Wow, each year 30 to 50 former players are arrested for drugs, stabbings, shootings, beatings and so on.
Look, steroid use is almost understandable in a League of MEN TOO BIG AND TOO MUSCLED UP.
I use them legally because I’m older and can get a prescription for steroids. If you are under 35 your body usually produces them naturally.
But dealing recreational drugs at these levels is pure greed and really stupid.
Lets hope no Chiefs are involved. Sam was buying the coke at $25,000 a kilo, and that’s high. So it almost had to be pure stuff. His boys would probably buy it, cut in half, then cut it in half again. The weed at $450 a pound was also probably good quality and would be sold at $1,000 or more a pound. Weekly.
That would supply this entire city and Chicago. These are huge deals.
Another black eye for the black athlete, which proves that being paid millions of dollars still doesn’t work. You still need an education which ALMOST NONE OF THESE PLAYERS HAVE.
Nick I’m sorry, but it’s true. These players are dumbasses for the most part.
Sure there are exceptions, but very few. The results have not been good so far off the field.
And now Sam will rat out everyone he knows.
I was a drug agent and I can tell you he will give up his mommy not to do the 40 years to life.
After he’s done, he’ll still get 15 years. What a shame. I hear he’s kinda a nice guy.
Two million dollars a year. Not enough, damn.
