NFL fines Marshawn Lynch $50,000 for not speaking to media

Tim Booth Associated Press

RENTON, Wash. – The NFL fined Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch $50,000 for violations of the league’s media policy.

League spokesman Michael Signora confirmed the fine Wednesday, which will total $100,000. Along with the $50,000 for violating the NFL Media Policy this year, the league is collecting the $50,000 fine that was imposed against Lynch for violations last season. The fine from 2013 was held in anticipation of future cooperation.

The league’s media policy mandates that players must be available during the week and in the locker room following all games. Lynch did not talk the past two weeks after games against the Giants and Kansas City.
