CHICAGO (AP) — A federal judge in Chicago has set bond at $100,000 for former Cowboys and Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd, who was cut from the team Friday after being charged with 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.
