On Tuesday, Murray called the popular play on his name a cool coincidence.
"The 'Hail Murray' deal, that's just a coincidence," Murray said. "That's never happened to me before, so that fact that it happened just fits the name, I guess."
According to the application obtained by ESPN, the trademark is intended to cover clothing like shirts, hats, pants, and sweaters. It also covers any usage rights for any website pertaining to or giving out information regarding football and appearances.
