The Chicago Bears are in the news thanks to Sam Hurd and his arrest for apparently trying to orchestrate a drug deal in Texas to distribute in the Chicago area. Judging by complaint against Hurd, he was a major drug dealer around the Chicago area.
So Hurd's arrest is the topic of the day for Bears players, who reacted to the news in Thursday's media session. Quotes via Brad Biggs:
Roy Williams: "It's a choice he made and there are consequences with choices that you make."
Brian Urlacher: "He's a good teammate. Outside of here, I don't know him very well. Always been very friendly."
Lance Briggs: "You don't go through a season without distractions. When it comes to business as a professional, you have to take care of biz."
And the best reaction comes from Vikings punter Chris Kluwe: "I'm looking for someone to supply me with 1000 pounds of video games a week I can distribute in the Minneapolis area. No informants please."
I've got a feeling this isn't the last time we'll be addressing Hurd's arrest. With law enforcement officials reportedly having a list of NFL players Hurd supplied to, this story may just be getting started.
