Cutting short the vacation to report on Bus Cook‘s latest denial, this one covering the WCCO report that confirmed an earlier PFT report from a source in Afghanistan (how wacky has this whole thing gotten?) claiming Brett Favre is already signed, sealed and delivered, and the Vikings are just waiting for an opportune moment to break the news to the world. From Sean Jensen of the Pioneer-Press:
Brett Favre’s agent denied another report Tuesday evening that the quarterback has agreed to a contract with the Vikings.
Two days after the Web site Pro Football Talk reported that a deal was in place and that the team had approved the production of Favre jerseys, WCCO-TV provided a similar report with a few minor differences, namely that the quarterback’s contract includes “heavy incentives.”
Asked in an e-mail if there was any truth to the WCCO report, agent Bus Cook wrote one word: “Nope.”
Cook did not elaborate.
I know it’s Bus’s job to deny everything until it’s time to confirm it, but don’t you think the guy would get a little sick after awhile of looking like Baghdad Bob? I guess if you pay a guy enough, it takes the sting out of seeming like a buffoon.
Now back to Alaska…
