Manziel, to forever be known in Texas as Johnny Football, is now going to be a trademarked property.
Clearly A&M is going to begin profiting from the immense popularity of Manziel by selling his No. 2 Aggie jerseys across the state. According to NCAA laws, however, this cashing in process can't go to Manziel for a while. By trademarking "Johnny Football" now both the family and A&M can stop it from being used for profit.
This means we can expect Texas A&M Johnny Football jerseys and hats and cups after he's done playing there. Because that's cool.
Do not expect any "Johnny Football" t-shirts or hats any time soon ... at least not legally.
