Shortly after the news broke about Sam Hurd's arrest for attempting to buy cocaine and marijuana for distribution in Chicago, a radio station reported that law enforcement officials had a list of NFL players who were clients of Hurd. This caused quite a stir in the football world because it's obviously not a good look if you have multiple players connected to Hurd's drug operation.
That radio station, 670 The Score in Chicago, cites law enforcement sources for their report but the lawyer for Hurd, David Kenner, disputes the notion that there is a list of 10 or more NFL players to which Hurd supplied drugs.
"I haven't seen all the material," L.A.-based attorney David Kenner told the Sun-Times. "But we have seen nothing to support that contention. We believe that is simply not the case."
So far no one has been able to corroborate the radio station report so we're not really sure what to make of it at this point.
Hurd is facing charges that he attempted to distribute over 500 grams of cocaine and if convicted faces up to 40 years in prison and up to a $5 million fine.
