RENTON, Wash. (AP) — A $50,000 fine to Seattle running back Marshawn
Lynch has been put on hold as long as he continues to comply with
league policy on being available to the media.
Lynch appealed the fine, but it was not overturned according to league
spokesman Greg Aiello. Instead, NFL executive vice president of
football operations Ray Anderson put the fine on hold after Lynch
committed to complying with league policy. If there are any further
violations, the $50,000 fine will be collected and a minimum fine of
$50,000 more will be assessed.
Lynch had declined all requests for interviews this season and had not
spoken to the media until last Friday when he talked for less than 90
seconds. Lynch's longest answer was 24 words when asked about the
Seahawks' focus this week not knowing who their opponent would be.
The Seahawks face New Orleans on Saturday.
