The Chicago Tribune reported Hurd allegedly attempted to purchase drugs from a supplier in North Texas. The Northern Illinois product told an undercover agent that he wanted up to 10 kilograms of cocaine and a half ton of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area, according to a report the paper cited that was filed by a special agent for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Hurd's bail was set at $100,000 at a hearing on Friday and he will have to appear in federal court in Dallas for arraignment.
Hurd signed a three-year contract with the Bears this past offseason after playing the previous five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. The 26-year-old has been primarily used on special teams by the Bears.
In 77 career games with Dallas and Chicago, Hurd has 53 receptions for 739 yards and two touchdowns.
