On Tuesday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the Seattle Seahawks running back the trademark to his phrase “I’m Just Here So I Won’t Get Fined.”
Lynch used that line to answer more than 20 questions that day and filed to trademark the phrase less than three weeks later.
In April, Lynch started putting in on apparel for his BeastMode line and currently sells a T-shirt with the phrase on it for $34.
Lynch also filed for the trademark to “About That Action Boss,” which is what he uttered to NFL Network’s Deion Sanders at the Super Bowl XLVIII media day. Lynch decided to abandon his pursuit of that trademark just 10 days ago.
Lynch is now the owner of four registered trademarks, along with his deals with Skittles, Pepsi and Nike.
