Robert Griffin III performs on the field he is going to make a lot of cash off the field. He has already signed lucrative sponsorship deals with several high profile companies and now is going about protecting his very catchy and media friendly nicknames.
Multiple outlets are reporting Griffin, whom the Redskins drafted second overall last month, hired an attorney following the draft and created an LLC, entitled Thr3escompany. Changelegal.com reports that Griffin also filed applications for trademarking RGIII, RG3, Robert Griffin III and the phrase “Unbelievably Believable.” It’s believed Griffin’s company will be selling everything imaginable, shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, pants, shorts, footwear, hats and uniforms are speculated to be involved in the patent. It’s unclear when and where Thr3escompany products will be available, but these very smart trademarks from Griffin will prohibit those merchandise venders you see outside of FedEx Field from making money off of RGIII’s name.
