The Chicago Bears receiver was allegedly setting up a drug-selling network
Sam Hurd, the Chicago Bears receiver known for...well, he wasn't really known for anything football related, was arrested for trying to buy 5-10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana each week. Now he's known as the unknown football player who tried to buy a crapload of drugs.
Hurd, who was apparently trying to set up a huge drug dealing network in Chicago (shouldn't you wait til your football career is over to try this?) was caught trying to buy the drugs off an undercover agent on Wednesday night.

Now he goes up against the Detroit Lions. What should we expect from Bennett this week?
I would expect more of the same as we saw Monday night.
