Brett Favre stays busy in retirement

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.

  1. 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.

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

  3. Brett Favre stays busy in retirement…..

    “let me guess, you raped the mayor’s wife and burn down city hall.”

  4. 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.

    Why did I ever think Favre finally retiring from football would mean no more stories about him?
    —————-
    Cause your a rube?

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. “Ok Cam… make sure you buy a prepaid ho-phone with cash so they can’t trace the sexting directly back to you. “

  15. 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.

  17. 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!!

  18. 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?

  19. “No, this isn’t about the latest Deadpin item…”

    “Deadpin”? Who does your proofreading for you?
