Cam Newton Has An Agent, Marketing Company, And Quarterback Coach: They Grow Up So Fast

Former amateur quarterback Cam Newton has moved into his new life as a professional with impressive efficiency. He really is a natural out there! Having never been represented in financial dealings before, he's already signed on with big-name agent Bus Cook, who represents Brett Favre.


Newton continued his newly begun career by bringing on George Whitfield Jr. to be his personal quarterback coach. A former college and arena league coach, Whitfield has also trained Ben Roethlisberger during the Steelers' QB's four-game suspension for that Milledgeville thing.


And Tuesday Darren Rovell announced Newton has signed on with IMG for his marketing. This is another big step for Newton, as his sterling reputation will need to be meticulously maintained in the event of any false claims that may be made about him. IMG managed Tiger Woods' public image at one point.


By aligning himself with Favre, Roethlisberger, and Woods, Newton is well on his way to becoming a distinguished pro on the field and off.
