Marshawn Lynch files to trademark latest famous phrase
Marshawn Lynch may be done with football for good, but the ever-quotable running back went out with one last quality phrase.
Lynch advised younger NFL players to “take care of y’all chicken” in his final interview after the Seahawks’ playoff loss to the Packers, urging them to care for their bodies and financial and mental well-being. Nine days later, Lynch applied for a trademark on the phrase “TAKE CARE OF YO’ CHICKEN,” according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.
Lynch is already selling apparel with the phrase on it, as well as another quote from that same media availability, “take care of yo’ mentals.”
Lynch and his advisers know how to capitalize on merchandise sales, and they’ve had good luck with it in the past. The running back may not play again, but it seems like a pretty safe bet that his status will ensure that there’s always an interest in what he’s up to and what he’s said previously.
