Brett Favre stays busy in retirement

Brett Favre Pic II

No, this isn’t about the latest Deadspin item regarding Brett Favre’s alleged off-field texting activities.  (More on that later.)  It’s about a second career that Favre may or may not be pursuing.

Long believed to be destined for television after he retires, the obligation to prepare and to shave and to wear shoes consisting of something more than a foam pad and a rubber strap where the toes go may be more work than Favre wants to do.

Though there’s no reason at this point to believe that Favre will be working for his agent, Bus Cook, we’re told that Favre already has been put to work by Cook.  Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Favre is believed to have attended Cook’s meeting with Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and members of Newton’s family.

Cook, who has represented Favre for years, is one of several finalists to represent Newton at the NFL level.  The meeting occurred in Atlanta.

There’s nothing wrong with Favre being involved in the sales pitch to Newton, now that Newton has left school and applied for the draft.  And it’s not the first time a current or former player has helped his agent secure a new client.  It’s unusual for the player to actually attend meetings with the prospective client.

Cook has not immediately responded to a request for confirmation and for comment as to the details of the arrangement, including whether Favre’s retirement from football has been followed by a decision to work as an agent or as a recruiter for Cook.

    Don’t pro athletes sometimes help with college recruiting too?

    Geezuz! When will this end?

  3. hobartbaker says: Jan 18, 2011 9:16 PM

    Bus gives Brett a flat 4% and reminds him periodically of how much Favre complained when Cook asked for a larger share in the past.

    prolly comparing photos….

  5. ttommytom says: Jan 18, 2011 9:22 PM

    It means that Newton must have a hot sister and Favre is trying to get her number. Otherwise Favre has no reason to attend.

    sounds like a productive meeting….”be careful of gold digging media whore skanks”…point taken, Cam?

    Why did I ever think Favre finally retiring from football would mean no more stories about him?

  9. jimmy1smith says: Jan 18, 2011 9:31 PM

    Actually, its a perfect match. From what I can tell, Cam Newton has trouble expressing himself in truthful terms and Lord knows Bus Cook has plenty of experience in handling clients who evade the truth. The stories about Cam’s father taking the money under the table while Cam was completely unaware sounds a lot like any number of similar stories (Matt Millen calling before the Lions-Packer game but they were only talking about hunting, cell phone records showing Col Klink called but there was no tampering and lastly his sexting stories, it was his messages but not his 4 inch pecker, ya, right!)

    Bus Cook is a slimeball and BrINt can attest to that.

    Favre needs to get out of the house. Hard to text when the old lady is under your nose.

    Funny how when The Packers are heading into their biggest post Favre game, he retires again, Predicts they win it all, and is in this story, all in 2 days. Wonder what the media whore does tomorrow?

    Upcoming PFT articles:

    “Favre Changes Toilet Paper Brands”

    “Favre Sleeps in ‘Til Noon, Deanna Throws Pillow at Him”

    “Favre Moves Up From Picture Books to Chapter Books”

    “Favre Texts His Former Middle School Sweetheart ‘Just to see what’s up’”

    “Favre Snoozes in First Class on Latest Flight”

    “Favre Orders Bigger TV, New Tractor”

    #4 may retire. But PFT won’t let him go.

  14. ilscrittore says: Jan 18, 2011 10:06 PM

    I thought he would go into the family meth business.

  15. mick730 says: Jan 18, 2011 10:27 PM

    Were I the Packers, I would never deal with a client of Cook’s again. The guy is just plain sleazy. And so is Favre. And so is his sister for that matter.

  16. berniemadoffsides says: Jan 18, 2011 10:31 PM

    Jesus, guys. ENOUGH with the Favre stories. Talk about him in five years when he goes to Canton.

    We get it: Favre = hits on PFT. Put up photos of Jen Sterger instead…. just don’t mention Brett. They will come, Mike. They will most certainly come!

    Or perhaps like many of us, tbd3 hoped that this media whore would get on his tractor and leave us alone…

    I know – wishful thinking…

  18. shadowgm1 says: Jan 18, 2011 11:16 PM

    What an idiot. Of all the QB’s coming out, Cook hitches his post to one of the sure busts.

    Favre has now gotten what he deserves. He’s become a living trophy for this former ambulance chaser to cart around, just to prove he’s actually EVER BEEN an agent.

  19. jerruhjones says: Jan 18, 2011 11:32 PM

    Make it stop. Please.

  20. lovechildofajsmith says: Jan 18, 2011 11:38 PM

    In other news, Brett can take comfort in knowing there are pictures of his 2 inch hog on the net for eternity…

  21. cosanostra71 says: Jan 18, 2011 11:42 PM

    must suck to be Cam Newton right now, facing a pay cut once he gets to the pros.

    Mommy, why won’t Brett Favre’s penis go away?

  23. silkyjohnson937 says: Jan 19, 2011 12:15 AM

    @sergisbauer thats just hilarious. Favre sends phlorio picture messages every morning

  24. mod976 says: Jan 19, 2011 12:37 AM

    What a way to work Favre’s name into something that has more to do with Cook and Newton than anything else. Hope you have a plan for next year on what is going to make people visit the site.

    @berniemadoffsides

    nobody wants to see ms.pinochio…..are you a kardashian and hilton fan too.

  26. henryd3rd says: Jan 19, 2011 5:32 AM

    Look the Daddy’s a pimp, Farve’s a sleaze and the agent is whatever he is so the three of them should get along quite nicely. Hopefully Cam’s best interest will be at the forefront of their negotiations.

    Lol PFT just milked the Favre cow to the ground… This site is just gonna be ugly next year without him.

  29. krow101 says: Jan 19, 2011 7:41 AM

    He still makes time to stick pins in his Aaron Rogers voodoo doll… and to spew hate at the Packers and their fans.

    What’s really funny is that you think Favre seeks media attention. The truth of the matter is the guy can’t live his life without someone with a camera, microphone or tape recorder following him. Maybe if the MEDIA leaves him alone he will go away as everyone wishes.

    Furthermore, for those of you that don’t like to read about Favre I have a simple solution for you. Don’t click on the articles with Favre’s name in the title. It’s really not that difficult to avoid.

  31. jc1958coo says: Jan 19, 2011 7:53 AM

    i thought favre said all he wanted to do when he retired was sit on the farm and ride the tractor!
    another typical brett favre lie! maybe he isn’t in the mile high club thats why he goes there!!

  32. theytukrjobs says: Jan 19, 2011 8:30 AM

    Brett: I don’t feel like doing it.

    Bus: Brett, you’ve put me through hell the last few years. I’ve lied to your wife, to America, and I’ve had to deal with the husbands and lawyers of gold digging beoches.

    Brett: Atlanta you said?
