When the New England Patriots drafted Mac Jones in April, talking heads couldn’t help but make immediate comparisons to Tom Brady.

Seriously. Folks on Twitter got those takes off before Jones eagerly made his way to the main stage to embrace Rodger Goodell!

An old-school pocket quarterback with limited mobility, effortless arm strength and pinpoint accuracy? If there was ever a signal caller to be appointed as Brady’s heir apparent, it simply had to be Jones.

The comparisons grew louder at the start of training camp, when Jones was often the first player stretching on the field before practice.

We’ve been hesitant to compare a first-year quarterback to the consensus greatest player in NFL history, but that might be impossible after Jones’ latest marketing maneuver.

Per Darren Rovell of The Action Network, Jones has filed for a trademark that is undeniably Brady-esque.

Patriots QB Mac Jones has filed for a Tom Brady-like trademark.

TB12, meet “MJ10.” He knows exactly what he’s doing.

It’s clear that Jones is looking to build his brand and capitalize on his newfound popularity as one of the foremost figures in Boston sports. At the rate the Celtics and Bruins are playing, coupled with the Patriots’ six-game winning streak, Jones might currently take the cake in that regard.

The trademark is going to be used for merchandise purposes, so fans can expect to see “MJ10” shirts, beanies, sweatpants, shoes (?) and sweatshirts available for purchase in the near future.

It’s unclear if Jones has plans to expand the reach of his new trademark, but apparel will have to do for now…unless, you know, he alters his diet to the point where he starts publishing books and selling supplements like a former Patriots QB.

Having already landed an endorsement deal with Nobull, a Boston-based company that designs apparel for CrossFit athletes, Jones isn’t having much trouble finding ways to earn some extra funds off the field.

Guess that rookie contract isn’t cutting it, eh?

It’s unclear whether Jones is actually trying to mirror Brady’s footsteps. If that is, in fact, his goal, he’s off to a pretty good start.

While the trademark is one thing, Jones’ rookie stats are eerily similar to the ones Brady posted in his first year as the starter.

You see what you did, Mac? Now we can’t help but make comparisons. We were trying to do you a favor!

All joking aside, a trademark is nothing less than Jones deserves. On top of exceeding expectations under center, he has the Patriots back on the map and playing like one of the best teams in the NFL, let alone the AFC.
