Let Russ Cook showed up first on Twitter, then on the field and now, it shows up on the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s website. As noted by Josh Gerben, the founder of a trademark law firm, Russell Wilson filed a trademark for “Let Russ Cook,” on October 6. The filing says Wilson intends to use the trademark to sell clothing and cooking utensils.

Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers told Brady Henderson of ESPN that all proceeds from the trademark will go to Wilson’s Why Not You Foundation. This is just a week after Wilson and Ciara announced the creation of the Why Not You Academy, a tuition-free, charter public high school.

Throughout the pandemic, Wilson and his family have made charitable donations across the United States in relief, as well as sponsoring Black Lives Matter billboards across the country after the murder of George Floyd.

As has been the case throughout Wilson’s career, the Seahawks quarterback continues to be a force of nature on the field and a force of good in the world.
