In an unexpected move, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has filed for a trademark for phrases used during his infamous media days.

According to, the NFL star filed the trademark to the phrase "I'm just here so I won't get fined" with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Lynch famously uttered the phrase as the answer to more than 20 questions during the Super Bowl XLIX media day.

"We heard from our fans and so many of them were saying that they wanted that phrase on the clothing," Chris Bevans, who runs Lynch's Beast Mode clothing line, told "This is just listening to the marketplace."

Bevans says the phrase will appear on range of T-shirts and sweatshirts from Beast Mode sometime in March.
