By Marice Richter DALLAS (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge sentenced former Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd to 15 years in prison for trying to set up a drug ring that would have been a major supplier of cocaine and marijuana to the Chicago area. Hurd, who pleaded guilty in April to one count of conspiracy to traffic narcotics, could have faced up to life in prison given the large amounts of drugs he intended to purchase. "Everything was the result of my marijuana addiction." Hurd was arrested outside a Chicago steakhouse in a 2011 federal sting.
