Former Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd, the central figure in a federal drug trafficking case, now plans to enter a not guilty plea this week.

Hurd has hired two new lawyers: Michael McCrum of San Antonio and Jay Ethington of Dallas. Both are former assistant U.S.Attorneys.

Hurd was arrested last month in Chicago after allegedly making a deal with an undercover agent to buy massive amounts of cocaine and marijuana from a supplier in North Texas.

The Chicago Bears released Hurd following his arrest.
