The NFL threatened to fine Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch $100,000 if he failed to meet with reporters after Sunday’s game with the Chiefs. After Sunday’s game with the Chiefs, Lynch failed to meet with reporters.
But Lynch did talk to a reporter and a former teammate/current analyst by phone, speaking with Mike Silver and former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson after leaving the locker room. Since both work for the league, Lynch may have believed that, in the eyes of the league, that would be enough.
We’ll find out soon whether it is. Initial indications are that it’s not, and that a stiff fine is indeed coming for Lynch.
As we’ve been told (and we’ll now tell you), stay tuned.
