Casper’s Taven Bryan Trademarks ‘Wyoming Wildman’ Nickname
Casper native Taven Bryan has the best nickname in the NFL and now he owns the rights to it. The Jacksonville Jaguars rookie recently trademarked the moniker "Wyoming Wildman".
The Natrona County High School alum earned the nickname from fans at the University of Florida. After Bryan was drafted by the Jags, an apparel company debuted the "Wyoming Wildman" t-shirt, inspired by the logo of professional wrestling legend "The Ultimate Warrior".
Now that Bryan owns the promotional rights to his nickname, the shirt is no longer available. Hopefully, the Wyoming Wildman will have his own officially licensed apparel soon.
Bryan signed a 4 year, $10.2 million contract with a $5.5 million signing bonus after being selected by Jacksonville with the 29th overall pick in the 2018 Draft. The Wyoming Wildman joins one of the best defensive lines in the league and is projected to play both defensive tackle and defensive end.
