It seems that every season Brett Favre thrusts himself into NFL headlines one way or another. Whether it’s talking about beating the Saints in the season opener despite being “retired” in 2010 or letting speculation about a return in 2011 run rampant, Favre just loves being in the headlines.
The 2013 version of this comes from Favre’s agent, Bus Cook. And the first thing that should be asked is why does Favre even need an agent if he’s truly retired? Well, obviously the answer is to have the agent show up at speaking engagements and tout how Favre is in the best shape ever and that he could play in the NFL right now. And that’s exactly what Bus Cook did recently.
“Today, he could play today,” Cook said Monday night before his appearance as guest speaker at the New Horizons Credit Union-1st & 10 Club meeting at Heron lakes Country Club. “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.”
And just like that, Brett Favre is back in the headlines because Bus Cook says he’s currently a better quarterback “than a lot of them out there today.”
