However, the Trademark Office denied the application in saying it could “falsely suggest a connection” with the Mets pitcher, who was “uniquely and unmistakably” known as “Tom Terrific.”
Earlier this month, Brady shocked fans when he announced his departure from the New England Patriots, with whom he won six Super Bowl championships.
Several days later, Brady announced that he decided to sign with the Buccaneers.
“Excited, humble and hungry … if there is one thing I have learned about football, it’s that nobody cares what you did last year or the year before that … you earn the trust and respect of those around through your commitment every single day,” he shared on Instagram. “I’m starting a new football journey and thankful for the @buccaneers for giving me an opportunity to do what I love to do.”
“There are a lot of things that were intriguing to me about the organization and the players and the coaches and the willingness to try to accomplish what the goal of playing football is, which is to win,” Brady said.
