Last week Brett Favre said his future could include coaching or some TV work but it was unlikely he would be doing either anytime soon. Well, if it's coaching he's looking to do, I think we've found his first pupil -- Cam Newton. Some in Carolina, like former Panther and now radio host Brentson Buckner, have been lobbying for Favre to work with Newton.
"Brett has seen everything and has a wealth of knowledge. If I'm Cam's agent, I get on the phone with Brett and say, 'I want you to tutor this guy,' " Buckner said.
And as it turns out, Favre's agent, Bus Cook, is also Newton's agent, so this could actually happen. (Favre actually helped Cook sign Newton as a client a few months back.)
Will it do any good?
That depends on Favre's teaching methods and whether he can effectively communicate with someone nearly half his age It also depends on what Favre can offer that Newton's other mentors -- Warren Moon, QB coach George Whitfield and his workout partner Ken Dorsey -- can't. It's hard to see where he fits in, especially with no coaching experience.
Favre could also provide Newton with some pointers on how to handle the spotlight and, if Newton were smart, he would do the opposite.
