Cam Newton wants to be mentored by Brett Favre.

Cam Newton dreams big. Though after a remarkable season where he dominated the attention of the college football universe,  won the Heisman Trophy and quarterbacked Auburn to a BCS title, he probably deserves the right to do so. Naturally, Newton's ambition is now aimed at the NFL Draft. And to accomplish success in that goal, he hired Brett Favre's agent, Bus Cook as his representation. Meeting Favre, according to Newton,  made that decision easier.

“When Brett Favre came into the meeting room as I was trying to decide which agent I was going to select, I seen Brett and Brett’s calling me by my name, and I was like wow,” Newton said while appearing on “NFL Total Access” on NFL Network. “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 said he hopes to be mentored by Favre. He might want to ask Aaron Rodgers how that worked out.
