Russell Wilson Files For Trademark Of “Let Russ Cook”

The Seahawks are letting Russ cook on the field, and now the MVP favorite will also be cooking off the field.

According to Josh Gerben of Gerben Law, Russell Wilson has filed paperwork seeking to trademark “LET RUSS COOK.”

The filing indicates that Wilson intends to sell a line of cooking utensils/tools and clothing using the trademark.

The “Let Russ Cook” movement took off at the start of the season. Fans were tired of Seattle’s run-first mindset despite having a superstar quarterback in his prime.

In Week 1 against the Falcons, the Seahawks unveiled the most pass-happy offense in the league. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer told Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer: “I get asked that a ton. Literally, that’s what everyone talks about out here in Seattle — the whole Let Russ Cook thing.”

A national audience was introduced fully to the phrase in Week 2, when Seattle hosted the Patriots on Sunday Night Football. After Wilson’s fourth touchdown, the broadcast went to commercial with a graphic of Wilson and the words “Let Russ Cook.” Even Cris Collinsworth used the phrase during the fourth quarter of the game.

Wilson has thrown for 2,151 yards on the season and leads the league with 26 touchdown passes.

The Seahawks have the NFC’s best record at 6-1. They will face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
