Newton hires NFL representation

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton has hired representation as he prepares for the NFL draft.

The former Auburn quarterback, who is skipping his senior season, signed with co-representatives, agent Bus Cook and Washington, D.C.-based Perennial Sports and Entertainment.

Perennial CEO Lamell McMorris confirmed the hiring Friday through a spokeswoman.

Cook's clients include currently retired quarterback Brett Favre.

Newton led the Tigers to a national championship, collecting the Heisman, Maxwell, Davey O'Brien and Manning awards. He also was a source of controversy since November after revelations surfaced that Newton's father, Cecil, shopped his services during Mississippi State's recruitment.
