Tom Brady hasn’t played a game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the six-time Super Bowl champion is already busy trying to safeguard money-making trademarks linked to his new club.

The 42-year-old NFL superstar’s company, TEB Capital Management, has filed for two new trademarks — “Tompa Bay” and “Tampa Brady” — trademark attorney Josh Gerben said Friday.

Brady, who spent the past 20 seasons with the New England Patriots and set a record for Super Bowl success, boosted the Bucs atop US sports merchandise sales thanks to purchases of his new Tampa Bay number 12 jersey.

Brady wants to use the two trademarks, which he applied for on Monday, and another he applied for last month, “TBxTB” for his initials and Tampa Bay, on clothings, footwear and headwear.

FEATURED STORIES

Last year, Brady tried to trademark the nickname “Tom Terrific” but it was rejected last August by the US Patent and Trademark Office, which ruled it was commonly associated with former New York Mets baseball pitcher Tom Seaver.
