After much back and forth, Texas A&M and the Seattle Seahawks have come to an agreement on the "12th Man" trademark, the parties announced Thursday.
The Seahawks, as part of a five-year deal, will no longer be able to use the "12th Man" in their Ring of Honor and have to cease all usage on the team's social media accounts.
Seattle must also pay a royalty fee for using it in the Pacific Northwest, and will reportedly help cover a portion of Texas A&M's legal fees to protect the trademark, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell.
The team's officials also relayed the Seahawks will move toward "12" or "12s" in cooperation with the new deal.
Texas A&M's "12th Man" dates back to 1922. The Seahawks were not established until 1974, and did not have its first season until 1976.
The Seahawks on Thursday announced on their Twitter account that they are "proud to continue the legacy and history of the 12th MAN in Seattle."
There are currently six Aggies on the Seahawks' roster in 2016 training camp, including defensive lineman Michael Bennett, offensive lineman Germain Ifedi and tailback Christine Michael.
