2010 Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton has decided to skip his senior season at Auburn and turn pro.

No surprise there, but his choice of a potential mentor could be.

Turns out Newton has hired veteran agent Bus Cook to represent him. Cook is Brett Favre's longtime agent.

During an appearance on the NFL Network during Super Bowl week, Newton mentioned that Favre stopped by Cook's office while Newton was getting a tour of the place. That sealed the deal for Newton and Cook.

Now, Newton hopes the recently retired quarterback can help him as he makes the adjustment from college to the NFL.

“It’s unheard of and it’s a dream come true just to be acknowledged and being able to talk and call Brett any time I feel like," Newton told 'NFL Total Access' on NFL Network.
