Brett Favre: Agent Bus Cook Wants Retired QB to Mentor Cam Newton
Favre And Newton Both Are Clients Of Bus Cook
An agent wants to get his two biggest clients together and reap a giant payday out of it, sound familiar?
Agent Bus Cook, who represents the currently retired Brett Favre and the recently drafted Cam Newton, suggested it would be a great idea for Favre to go to Carolina and mentor Newton as he transitions into the NFL.
Of course, that would mean the Panthers would have to sign Favre to some kind of coaching contract, of which Cook would take his usual percentage, not that I am cynical about these things.
Cook said Favre would welcome the chance to further Newton's growth when their schedules allow.
"Brett has offered to do that before with Cam,'' Cook said. "He would obviously be delighted to work with Cam. They've met and they've talked."
Newton already is receiving tutoring from several other quarterbacks, including Warren Moon and Ken Dorsey, so what Favre would have to add to the mix is a good question.
(Insert timely interception joke here)
Favre could just sit with Newton and mentor him on how to handle the media. While Newton already has a winning smile and commands headlines, he still gets a lot of criticism. Favre is the master of taking any bad PR situation and spinning it into gold with the mainstream media eating out of his hands.
Whoever is mentoring Newton better be focusing on taking snaps from center, reading defenses, and learning how to call a pro-style offense, because none of those skills are where they need to be at the moment, according to just about every scout who has watched him.
