TEMPE, Ariz. — Be careful using “Hail Murray.” It might cost you soon.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to trademark “Hail Murray,” the phrase that became popular after Murray’s 43-yard Hail Mary touchdown to DeAndre Hopkins to beat the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.
“The ‘Hail Murray’ deal, that’s just a coincidence,” Murray said Tuesday when asked about the play being dubbed that. “That’s never happened to me before, so that fact that it happened just fits the name I guess.”
The application is currently “awaiting examination,” according to the USPTO website.
