No quarterback elevated their stock last year more than Lamar Jackson. The second-year star from Louisville shined with the Baltimore Ravens en route to his first MVP trophy.
While it’s been a rather quiet offseason for Jackson, the dual-threat quarterback made a few headlines this week. It turns out that he’s filed a lawsuit against Amazon.
According to TMZ, third-party vendors are selling shirts and hoodies on Amazon’s marketplace that are apparently rip-offs of his nicknames and persona. These items include nicknames and phrases that Jackson created, such as “Action Jackson” or “Not Bad For A Running Back.”
Jackson is suing Amazon for confusing the public into thinking he’s affiliated with the apparel it sells. He also reportedly said that all these knockoffs are hurting his ability to make profit from his own brand.

In addition to asking Amazon to pay up for the damages it caused, Jackson wants the company to stop producing knockoffs.
Jackson’s brand, Era 8 Apparel, should be able to make more profit once Amazon removes its T-shirts and hoodies from its site.
Similar to his opponents this past season, Amazon will probably fall short to Jackson.
