Brett Favre could still play today, agent Bus Cook says
Brett Favre will be turning 44 next month and has enough gray hair to kill it in a “Just for Men” commercial. The Ole Gunslinger has not taken an NFL snap since he was with the Minnesota Vikings in 2010. Despite that, Favre’s agent Bus Cook believes the Green Bay Packers legend could still play in the NFL.
“Today, he could play today,” Cook said Monday night, via AL.com’s Tommy Hicks. “I saw him the other day. He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically.
“His arms look like a blacksmith’s arms. He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day. He runs four or five miles a day. He’s coaching at the high school and they’re undefeated. He loves it. His body fat is 7.5 percent and he weighs 225 pounds. He could play today, better than a lot of them out there today.”
Maybe Favre has seen what’s going on with teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars, because it sounds like his agent is trying to sell a product. He could probably play better than a couple current NFL quarterbacks based on experience alone, but it’s ridiculous to think that Favre could be in his best shape of his career. He’s pretty much an old man.
Cook went on to talk about Favre’s passion for football and how he never played for money. He’s obviously just proud of his most famous client, but Favre’s NFL days are over. His next moment of glory will come when he has his jersey retired a Lambeau Field, which sounds like it could be coming sooner rather than later.
