Johnny Manziel files for “Johnny Cleveland” trademark

Untitled

All Johnny Everything!

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is currently awaiting approval for the “Johnny Football” trademark, but the Orange and Brown’s No. 2 is taking things a step further with his reported application for the trademarking of “Johnny Cleveland.” ESPN’s Darren Rovell reports that the Johnny Cleveland trademark would be the 10th such a filing by Manziel’s marketing team, including “JFF,” “ManzIIiel” and “The House That Johnny Built,” a reference to the newly renovated Kyle Field on Texas A&M campus.

Records with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) show that last Manziel’s company, JMan2 Enterprises LLC (seriously), filed for the moniker with the intention to use it on athletic apparel and footwear. Apparently, some other folks looking to make a quick buck had attempted to do the same a few days back, but were denied based on Manziel’s well-known existence.

Despite that whole back-up quarterback thing, Manziel still has the No. 1 best-selling jersey on the NFL’s official store, NFLShop.com, based on sales from April through August.

Wonder what Merril Hoge thinks about this…

    Good to see Mr. Manziel fully expressing his appreciation for 17th century English poetry

    A SMART QB WOULD HAVE TRADEMARKED MOSES CLEAVELAND.

    WHEN HE SQUATS LIKE THAT HE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE A FOOTBALL PLAYER, HE LOOKS LIKE A KID WHOSE MOM FORGOT TO PICK HIM UP AT SCHOOL.

    Hopefully you don’t have to adjust it to Kaka after a couple seasons.

    because we are slackers?

    I thought you’d want to sew a Watkins patch when he takes the number when Hoyer leads us to 12-4 and we trade JFF to Buffalo for Watkins and the #33 pick in the draft.

  • RGB

    Touche’.

  • RGB

    Ooooh. :D

    Assuming JFF doesn’t copyright the number 2.

  • Wow

    That juvenile punk!

    That’s just nonsense. We will trade Manziel to Dallas.

  • RGB

    I will drive from Savannah to Cleveland, then deliver him to Dallas MYSELF, if that’s what it takes to make that happen.
