QB Newton hires Favre’s agent
Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton has hired representation as he
prepares for the NFL draft.
The former Auburn quarterback, who is skipping his senior
season, signed with co-representatives, agent Bus Cook and
Washington, D.C.-based Perennial Sports and Entertainment.
Perennial CEO Lamell McMorris confirmed the hiring Friday
through a spokeswoman.
Cook’s clients include currently retired quarterback Brett
Newton led the Tigers to a national championship, collecting the
Heisman, Maxwell, Davey O’Brien and Manning awards. He also was a
source of controversy since November after revelations surfaced
that Newton’s father, Cecil, shopped his services during
Mississippi State’s recruitment.
