Former NFL WR awaits sentencing in a Texas detention facility for alleged drug trafficking. He could face life in prison.

Sports Illustrated recently published a piece on former NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd and his alleged massive drug trafficking operation.

The news came as a shock to many across the league when the news broke close to two years ago.

Here’s an excerpt from the piece:

“The alleged amounts of cocaine and marijuana in his case are so massive, the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services Department has recommended that Hurd—husband to his college sweetheart, father to their one-year-old girl, still unanimously loved by friends and former teammates throughout the NFL— be sentenced to life in prison without parole when he next appears in federal court, on Nov. 13.”
