(CBS) Sam Hurd’s attorney denied Friday that his client provided drugs to other NFL players.
Speaking at the Dirksen U.S Courthouse where Hurd was released on $100,000 bond after being arrested on federal drug charges, Attorney Brett Greenfield said that accusation is “totally false.”
“With respect to rumors that Sam has been supplying drugs to other members of the NFL, out of respect to the NFL, out of respect to his teammates, and out of respect to other players he 100 percent denies that allegation. It is patently and totally false,” Greenfield said.
The McNeil & Spiegel Show on 670 The Score, citing a law enforcement source, reported Thursday that police have a list of NFL players Hurd supplied drugs for and the list is “in the double-digits.”
In response to the arrest, the Bears waived the wide receiver Friday. Greenfield said his client was “disappointed” about being cut.
“Sam’s a football player. He wants to play. He’s a great asset to the Bears, or was a great asset to the Bears and he’s going to be great asset hopefully to another organization in the near future,” the attorney said.
