Russell Wilson recently filed a trademark for the phrase “Let Russ Cook,” a phrase commonly uttered by Seahawks fans over this past offseason.
“The listing on the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s website indicates the trademark would cover cooking utensils, cookware and cooking attire such as chef’s hats and aprons,” writes ESPN’s Brady Henderson. “The application was filed Oct. 6.”
It is safe to say that the Seahawks have heeded the call, as the coaching staff has consistently put the ball in Wilson’s hands. Though Wilson’s interception count has increased, the Seahawks are 6-1 and on top of the NFC West largely as a result of the new pass-heavy offensive approach. The Seahawks still have a few challenging opponents on their schedule, so they cannot let up.
Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers stated that the proceeds from the trademark will go to Wilson’s Why Not You Foundation.
