670 The Score has learned from a drug enforcement officer working on the case: Sam Hurd was amongst the "top few" drug dealers in the city.

Thats NUTS! RT @BradBiggs: Sam Hurd wanted to buy 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week. So, he was looking to buy 2 tons per month.

Sam Hurd attempted to purchase 5-10 kilos of coke and a 1000 pounds of Marijuana off an undercover agent. Winters ARE brutal in Chicago.

#Bears WR Roy Williams on Sam Hurd: "It's a choice he made and there are consequences with choices that you make."
WOW, great stuff! The ignorance of these athletes with such a rare opportunity to play in the NFL STILL MAKES ME shake my head.

Best part of the Sam Hurd story (so far): He wanted to use Mexican cellphones because he thought American law enforcement couldn't tap them.

Here are some details from the criminal complaint against Hurd, available publicly.

1. Hurd told an undercover agent Wednesday night that he was looking to buy "5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area."

2. Hurd negotiated to pay $25,000 per kilogram for the cocaine and $450 per pound of the weed. So Hurd had the cash flow to pay for $575,000-$700,000 worth of drugs per week. That's well over $2 million per month. (We'll let you imagine how much he was bringing in.)

3. That money Hurd was willing to spend was on top of what he was already selling. Hurd told the informant that he currently distributed "four kilograms of cocaine per week in the Chicago area, but that the supplier could not supply him with enough quantity."

4. Hurd first came on the police's radar in July. After receiving a tip, police found a man with a bag filled with $88,000 in a canvas bag. The man said the money and car belonged to Hurd. It was Hurd's car, and the receiver still attempted to get the money back.

5. Hurd was looking for Mexican cell phones, because he believed authorities didn't have the ability to track them.

6. This wasn't a small operation. Hurd only dealt with "high level" deals; a co-conspirator handled more day-to-day stuff. Hurd allegedly had business as far away as California and had a fleet of vehicles.

We suspect this story is only getting started, and it's one that could get increasingly uncomfortable for the NFL. If Twitter is any indication, it's already big news.

Sam Hurd is the fifth-highest trending topic in the country right now.

So, NFL was a bit of a sideline then?
"Yeah that's the stuff, ALL 1,500 KILOS!!!!"
This is gonna turn out to be a huge mess for the NFL if the list of NFL players that bought from this guy gets out, Hopefully no 49ers are on that list

"distribution in the Chicago area"

Hopefully not.
