The Cowboys have been predictably mum on the subject of Sam Hurd’s arrest on Wednesday--we say “predictably,” because Hurd’s current Bears teammates have done their best to keep their reactions to the story short, in an effort to remain focused on this week's matchup--but Jerry Jones addressed the situation on Friday, in his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan.
“I sure was sad to hear that,” Jones said, via ESPN Dallas. “That’s not good for obviously him and his [family] but certainly for his extended friends and associates. We’ll see how this unfolds as we get more information on it.
“He was always an exemplary player for us, an exemplary person and citizen. You could just count on him at all times.”
Jones was also asked if he had any concerns about the arrest and investigation implicating anyone still currently on the roster--a considerate concern. since a source has come out saying the police have a list “in the double digits” of fellow NFL players who were allegedly supplied with drugs by the former Cowboys receiver.
“I have no detail at all on his activity and when and where and how,” Jones said. “I just couldn’t answer that. But I’m really satisfied with how the basic method of understanding the example that we want our players to set and appropriate behavior.”
