Marshawn speaks to media, says “I don’t run to get tackled”


Yes, Marshawn Lynch has spoken.

The Seahawks running back, whose $50,000 fine for a season of not talking to the media has been suspended based on his commitment to cooperate going forward, talked to reporters following Seattle’s 23-15 win over the Saints.  Our Curtis Crabtree, who moonlights here while working primarily for KJR radio, says that Lynch answered nine questions.

Said Lynch in response to one of the questions, “I don’t run to get tackled.”

Lynch, who had 140 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns on Saturday, will be required to pay the original $50,000 and another $50,000 if he once again stiff arms the media.
