NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NFL has fined Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch $50,000 for violating the league’s media policy.
Lynch stepped in front of a camera Friday and spoke for less than 90 seconds. It was his first time taking questions from the media all season, having politely declined every previous time.
NFL players are required to speak with reporters at least twice a week.
Lynch’s longest answer was 24 words when asked about the Seahawks’ focus this week not knowing who their opponent will be.
The Seahawks will host the New Orleans Saints in the divisional playoffs Saturday.
