No longer a player, Brett Favre turns to Cam Newton, storm victims

This should come as no surprise, but Brett Favre isn’t exactly decisive about what to do now that his playing career apparently is over.

He might do TV. He might dip a Croc into the coaching waters by advising Cam Newton as the rookie transitions to the NFL, but Favre told WDAM-TV nothing was going to happen “any time soon.”

So, in the interim, he is helping victims of the recent tornado devastation in Hackleburg, Ala. The town of 1,500 is a Wrangler distribution center and he happens to be a Wrangler spokesman.

“He said, ‘I don't mind signing autographs. But if I go up there, I'm going to bring help,’ ” Favre’s agent, Bus Cook said. “ ‘I'm going up there to work.’ ”

Cook, who also represents Newton, said Favre would be willing to help the No. 1 draft pick.

“Brett has offered to do that before with Cam,” Cook said. “He would obviously be delighted to work with Cam. They've met and they've talked.”
