Former Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell charged with drug felony

Former Chicago Bears wide receiver David Terrell hasn’t exactly had the life he had hoped for when he was drafted in the first round out of Michigan.

Terrell, who was selected 8th overall by the Bears only played three seasons in the Windy City before moving on to the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, finding zero success in any of his stops. Terrell also tried out for the Kansas City Chiefs but was unable to secure a roster spot.

Drowning in self sorrow, Terrell, who said he’d cut his balls off to play with Jay Cutler turned to drugs and was recently charged with felony manufacturing or delivery of cannabis and a misdemeanor count of battery.

Now he better cut those balls off to receive a reduced sentence.


Officers received a call of smoking marijuana on Friday afternoon and conducted an interview with Terrell, according to the police report. Cannabis scales and equipment to package were in plain view.

At one point Terrell struck the hand of an officer and was taken into custody, according to the report. A second officer was taken to a hospital for medical attention after Terrell tried to resist arrest.

Two other individuals were arrested with Terrell, according to Mirabelli.
