INDIANAPOLIS -- Brett Favre's agent said Friday morning that he has no idea if his client will return for a 20th NFL season and confirmed the fact the Vikings are applying no pressure for the quarterback to make a decision about 2010.
"I don't know, I have no idea [what Favre will do]," Bus Cook said before entering the annual agents meeting that is held here at the NFL Scouting Combine. "He's just not even thinking about it really."
Asked if he had talked to Favre of late, Cook said, "not about," the future.
"We'll just have to see what he wants to do whenever he makes up his mind," Cook said. "I've never asked him about [the future] and don't intend to start that now. I've never bothered him about that stuff."
Rick Spielman, the Vikings vice president of player personnel, said Thursday that the Vikings have put no timetable on Favre to make up his mind. Coach Brad Childress will speak to the media this morning at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Cook said he did help set-up Favre's scheduled appearance next Thursday on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. That will be Leno's first week back on the program after his prime-time show flopped. The situation has created a stir because Leno is replacing Conan O'Brien, who was picked to succeed Leno.
"They'll be talking about retirement and un-retirement and all that stuff," Cook said, jokingly. "They both have been doing it."
