CHICAGO (AP) — A federal judge in Chicago has set bond at $100,000 for former Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd, who was cut from the team after being accused of trying to set up a drug-dealing network.
At a hearing Friday, Judge Young Kim also ordered Hurd to surrender his passport and any firearms.
Hurd must pay all of the $100,000 to be released. He'll be tried in Texas, where the drug charges originate.
Hurd was arrested Wednesday after authorities said he agreed to buy a kilogram of cocaine from an undercover agent. A criminal complaint says Hurd wanted to set up a drug-distribution network in Chicago.
Bears general manager Jerry Angelo says the team cut Hurd, who was in his first year with the Bears and sixth year in the NFL.
