Johnny Manziel has already begun to cash in on his football-playing fame by appearing in commercials and agreeing to endorsement deals. But the ex-Texas A&M quarterback wants to capitalize on a whole lot more than just that. He wants to slap his name on everything he can sell as well.

According to TMZ Sports, Manziel has field an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office requesting exclusive rights to various permutations of his name and jersey number. Some of these include "JIIM," "JFF," "JMAN," and "The Houst that Johnny Built," among others.

Manziel's intent is to use the permutations on athletic shirts, sleepwear, women's athletic tops, shorts, skirts, gloves and even onesies for babies.

His application is still pending at this point, but a decision is expected to be very soon.

In the meantime, Manziel is still currently fighting for the rights to the "Johnny Football" moniker after an investment company filed before Manziel did while he was rising to fame.
