James A. Cook, better known as Bus Cook, has the duty, chore, obligation, privilege to represent Brett Favre as his Contract Advisor. Cook also represents 23 other active NFL players including, Peria Jerry, Michael Turner, Jay Cutler, Calvin Johnson, and Mercedes Lewis (who had a big game this past weekend, which will be important for future contract talks).
Even with that beautiful roster of clients, Cook’s job is not easy by any stretch of the imagination. He recently had a client who was cut by a team and then was busted for a substantial amount of marijuana, a client who was in a car wreck and killed his wife who was in the car, and a client who just found out that he is the father of a child who is 10 years old. He also had to deal with aftermath of Steve McNair’s death, when his mistress, shot and killed him back in 2009.
Last Tuesday, Cook was the featured speaker at the Tallahassee Quarterback Club. Click here for the interview, which is broken up into two segments.
