NFL Draft prospect Johnny Manziel has made a huge step in creating his American Football legacy this week by securing the rights to his 'Johnny Football' trademark, sources say.
The company Kenneth R.Reynolds Investments had acquired the rights to the 'Johnny Football' trademark in 2012 as the former Texas A&M quarterback was coming up through the ranks with the Aggies.
But now Manziel and his business enterprise, JMAN2, have reached an agreement whereby the QB will be control of the trademark.
The news is very positive for Manziel and his brand, with the Johnny Football trademark sure to be a huge part of his branding in the NFL and with his new team.
Now that Manziel is free from the NCAA marketing rules, him and his prospective NFL team can have a field day with the endless possibilities for making money.
