Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch filed a trademark last week for the phrase, "I'm just here so I don't get fined," Mike Baker of The Seattle Times reports.

The phrase was made famous during Super Bowl media day when Lynch answered every question with the phrase to avoid a fine by the NFL.

Lynch was fined $100,000 for not complying with the league's media policy earlier last season and often repeats the same phrase in interviews.

Last year, Lynch answered questions with, "I’m just about that action, boss." He applied for a trademark for that phrase, and now sells items with "About That Action Boss" on his website. Lynch first trademarked "Beast Mode" in 2008, after his rookie season.
