If the rest of the year goes the same way it has for agent Bus Cook over the first two days, it’s going to be a very, very good year.
In the hours since 2013 gave way to 2014, Cook has signed Bears quarterback Jay Cutler to a new contract that will pay out $54 million over three years. Cook also has lured South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to Cook’s agency.
PFT has confirmed that Clowney has picked Cook to be Clowney’s first NFL agent. Per one league source, Clowney’s decision to go with Bus Cook came after Clowney had given Jay Z the impression that Roc Nation Sports would get the assignment, with Jay Z handling the off-field deals and in-house NFLPA-certified agent Kim Miale handling the contract.
It’s unclear why Clowney ultimately picked Cook. Some are speculating that Cook agreed to a greatly reduced commission. Then again, it’s possible that Cook closed the deal by making an argument that featured 54 million specific points.
